Greg Clark to visit India in an effort to boost students’ arrival to the UK
Minister of Science and Universities, Greg Clark of the UK is visiting India in a bid to attract more students from India to the UK. British visa approval has been projected as being strict for foreigners. This visit will build on the education links existing between the two countries.

The move is also stated to focus on providing opportunities for work to qualified international graduates who would then be able to reside in the UK and work there for a period. This would add to the country’s economy substantially. Also vital to note is the fact that as a foreign student, one can work for 20 hours on a weekly basis during their study tenure in the UK. There are several post-study work opportunities in graduate jobs still available.

After China, it is the Indian students who flock to the UK for further studies in great numbers. At present, there are 22,385 Indian students enrolled for higher education in the UK.  The reason why the Britishers value Indian presence in their universities is because they contribute economically, academically and culturally. In turn, the Indian students have a positive and enriching experience at the UK universities.
