Impact of student visa policy on admissions to universities in the UK and Northern Ireland

31 Jan 2013

The House of Lords debate the impact of the student visa policy on 31 January 2013. In it we highlight that:

"There is an urgent need to review the Home Office approach to international students and to improve UKBA procedures and staff training. Equally important the Cabinet and Home Offices should jointly commission a review, backed at the highest level of government, to identify guiding principles to inform the treatment of international students. To be effective and meaningful, these principles should be adopted by all key stakeholders, including higher education, and used to inform the tone of private and public discourse."
