Great News for Study Abroad aspirants from India aiming to pursue their higher studies in the UK!!!

The UK and India have signed a new migration partnership, the ‘Migration and Mobility Partnership’ which aims to make it easier for British and Indian citizens to live and work in each other’s countries. This remarkable agreement is part of the UK Government’s commitment to provide an immigration system that attracts the brightest individuals to the UK not only from India but from across the world. 

British High Commissioner to India, Alex Ellis, said: 

“Indian student numbers to the UK are growing fast, and nearly half of all UK skilled work visas go to Indian professionals – contributing significantly to shared prosperity and mutual understanding. I’m confident the new post-study Graduate Route and Young Professionals scheme will significantly increase those numbers.” 

The UK-India Migration and Mobility Partnership Plusses 

Let’s have a look at the benefits or advantages of this partnership for citizens of either nations. 

  • Thousands of 18-30-year-olds can work and live in each other’s country for up to two years. 
  • This professional and cultural exchange programme is going to work similarly as the present Youth Mobility Schemes. 
  • India will be the First Visa National Country to benefit from this. 
  • 3,000 young Indian professionals can go to the UK through this route each year based on this partnership. 


Status of Indian Students pursuing Higher Studies in the UK 

As per the latest statistics, more than 53,000 Indian students came to the UK last year for higher education and nearly a quarter of all international students in the UK are from India. 

In addition, the new post-study Graduate Route which is offering 2-3 years stay back option to eligible graduates after studies in the UK is going to open for applications on 1 July 2021. This will no doubt be offering yet another route for talented young Indians to build careers in the UK. 

The agreement will improve the process pertaining to the return of Indian citizens with no legal right to stay in the UK and the same applicable to UK citizens staying in India. 

So, in short UK is providing ample opportunities not only to Indian students to study in UK but also to Indian professionals to live and work in the UK. This brightens the horizons for all the Indians who dream to be in the UK either for their dream degree or for a dream job.
