Striving to Promote Equality and Diversity in UK Higher Education

Overseas students can earn less to stick around

The government has cut the amount that overseas graduates need to earn if they want to work in the UK after they finish their courses, potentially making British universities more attractive international destinations.

Meanwhile, a senior civil servant has argued that attracting international students is the best way for the UK to make money from education, warning that overseas branch campuses are unlikely to offer comparable economic benefits.

Currently, non-European Union graduates of UK universities have to earn above a certain threshold dependent on their profession if they want to stay in the UK to work.

But from 6 April, a lower “new entrant” threshold will be introduced for overseas graduates, those under 25 and graduate trainees switching countries with their firms.
