UK to let foreign students stay two years after graduation post-Brexit

London: Britain’s government on Wednesday announced new post-Brexit immigration plans that will allow international students to work in the country for two years after graduating.
Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom said the change was aimed at attracting the brightest and the best from around the world and a sign of the UK’s ambition once we have left the European Union. “Instead of being open to free movement from just the (EU), the United Kingdom will be able to take advantage of a global talent pool... and that’s something that’s a great advantage for us,” she told BBC radio. Leadsom said the government wanted to increase the number of international students in Britain 30 percent to 600,000 by 2030. (AFP)
