Every year, over 250,000 international students come to the UK to study. Many of these students are currently isolated on campuses throughout the UK, have seen their studies disrupted and there is growing uncertainty about their opportunity to seek employment in the UK following their studies.

These students should be granted an extension on their Tier-4 visas so they can have a fair opportunity to seek employment sponsorship following the lockdown caused by Covid-19.

I am currently an MBA student studying at the University of Surrey, a number of my cohort are in this position and many specifically came to study in the UK because of the post-MBA opportunities. In particular, the MBA has developed an advanced managerial skill-set that will be relevant for companies recruiting in a post-lockdown world.

Join me in supporting our international students.
