Tougher Rules To Stop Abuse Of Student Visa System

Tougher rules have been brought in to stop people abusing the student visa system to remain illegally in the UK.

Home Secretary Alan Johnson said 30% of migrants who came into the UK were on student visas and a number were adults taking short courses, not degrees.

Under the new rules, applicants will need to speak English to near-GCSE level and those on short courses will not be able to bring dependants.

The Tories said the system had been the "biggest hole in border controls".

The Home Office would not confirm reports the changes may cut visas issued this year by tens of thousands.

A spokesman said a review of student visas had been ordered in November. In 2008/9, about 240,000 student visas were issued by the UK.

News of the new measures comes a week after student visa applications from Nepal, northern India and Bangladesh were suspended amid a big rise in cases.

Last year the UK introduced a system requiring students wishing to enter the country to secure 40 points under its criteria.

However, the government has faced criticism that this has allowed suspected terrorists and other would-be immigrants into the UK, only for them to stay on despite their visas being temporary.

Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, the home secretary denied the system had been lax before.

"By 2011, we will have the most sophisticated system in the world to check people not just coming into the country but to check they have left as well," he said.

He said the UK remains open to those foreign students who want to come to the UK for legitimate study.

"We are the second most popular location for people going into higher education," he said.

"We have to be careful that we are not damaging a major part of the UK economy, between 5bn and 8bn."
Immigration Minister Phil Woolas told the BBC's Politics Show 200 bogus colleges had been closed.

"Students have foreign national identity cards. We have the e-Border counting in and counting out," he said.

"The latest proposals are a response to the moves by people who are trying to get round the system."

Under the measures, effective immediately:

  • Successful applicants from outside the EU will have to speak English to a level only just below GCSE standard, rather than beginner level as at present

  • Students taking courses below degree level will be allowed to work for only 10 hours a week, instead of 20 as at present

  • Those on courses which last under six months will not be allowed to bring dependants into the country, while the dependants of students on courses below degree level will not be allowed to work

  • Additionally, visas for courses below degree level with a work placement will also be granted only if the institutions they attend are on a new register, the Highly Trusted Sponsors List.

    Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesman Chris Huhne said the UK needed to "restore immediately control of our borders".
