Indian Students to benefit through the UK's New Graduate Route:- All the Indian students in the United Kingdom will have an opportunity to stay in the country for a long time after the completion of their education. Priti Patel, UK Home Secretary opened a new graduate immigration route that will benefit thousands of international students to stay and work in the United Kingdom. They can look for opportunities at any skill level for two years after their education gets completed.
As per the press release from the British High Commission, the statement said "For the first time, the vast majority of applicants to the graduate route will be able to apply in a fully digital way, using the UK Immigration: ID Check smartphone app. All the successful applicants will be issued an eVisa and they will be able to conveniently access this status whenever needed to prove their rights in the UK". The process is more convenient as the students can submit all the documents online.
Prior to this, the students had to visit a Citizenship application service center to submit the documents or they have to resubmit the biometrics. All those who cannot use the application can apply online but they will have to visit an application center. There are more than 56,000 Indian students who are granted student visas in the UK last year which is 13 percent higher than the previous year.
