Petitioning Theresa May…Bring back the post-study work visa

We are calling on the UK Government to bring back the post-study work visa or an alternative scheme so that international students can continue to work in the UK after they have finished their study.

International students build their lives in the cities that they study in and by being here make the UK richer culturally, socially, intellectually and financially. Up until 2012 international students studying in the UK could apply for a post-study work visa. This enabled them to work for up to two years after they graduated, meaning that the UK directly benefited from the skills and knowledge the students gained during their degree.

The post study visa scheme was closed by the current UK Government as part of a drive to cut immigration. This is having a detrimental impact on higher education, the economy and society as international students choose to go elsewhere because they feel unwelcome.

We are calling for the retroduction of the post study visa because:

– Current policies are making our international students feel unwelcome in the UK.

– Those aspiring to study in the UK are being discouraged from applying and the UK is losing out. Nineteen per cent of non-EU students would not recommend the UK as a place to study for a friend or relative (this is as high as 34, 36 and 38% for students from India, Nigeria and Pakistan respectively).[1]

– The UK Parliament’s All Party Group on Migration has called on the Government to open a new route for work in the UK after graduation.[2]

– Seventy-five per cent of the general public think that international students should be able to study and work in the UK after graduation.[3]

– As well as paying substantial tuition fees, international students support local businesses in the towns and cities in which they live, and bring in an estimated £7 billion to the UK economy each year.[4]

– International students make our communities more culturally and socially rich.

– International students help UK students to develop into globally aware and culturally literate graduates.

– The UK risks falling behind other countries in the international higher education market. Since 2010 the number of non-EU students starting a course in the UK has grown by 3% (and decreased two years in a row). By contrast the number of new international enrolments in the United States between 2010 – 2014 grew by 26%.[5]

Richard-Branson-M2W-Kenya-Trip-II Richard-Branson-M2W-Kenya-Trip-III Craig Kielburger About Free The Children

In 1995 at the age of 12, when Craig Kielburger read about child labour in developing countries, he was appalled. So he brought a group of his friends and classmates together to form ‘Free The Children’ with the aim of eradicating child labour around the world Today, Free The Children are the world’s largest network enabling children to help other children through education. It has more than one million young people involved in its innovative education and development programs across 45 countries.

Through Virgin Atlantic Foundation partnership with Free the Children, they are working with village communities in Ghana, Kenya, India  and China. Villagers often face the challenges of climate change on a day-to-day basis, particularly as extreme weather patterns make access to water increasingly difficult. This can be devastating as many communities depend entirely on growing crops and raising cattle to survive. In a drought, there might not be a drop of rain for many months. The crops that sustain the villagers can’t grow, animals can’t survive, and women and children have to travel further and further to collect water.

They are also supporting Free the Children’s ‘Be The Change’ UK schools tour, which aims to get young people involved in issues that matter to them, so they are empowered to make a positive difference to their own and others’ lives – whether in their own neighbourhood, or somewhere much further afield.
