The United Kingdom government’s decision to exclude India from the revised list of countries eligible for relaxed student visas is likely to make students aspiring for foreign studies to rethink their options.

A British High Commission spokesperson clarified that this announcement would put no additional hurdle to genuine Indian students trying to pursue higher education in the UK.
The United Kingdom government’s decision to exclude India from the revised list of countries eligible for relaxed student visas is likely to make students aspiring for foreign studies to rethink their options.
While stakeholders working in the sector of foreign higher education remark the move as shocking, this would also mean that Indian students will now have to go through a tedious process for documentation and application for Tier 4 student visas.
The countries figuring in the revised list include US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, China, Bhutan, Bahrain and Serbia among others. The move has also upset students currently studying in UK. Arnold (name changed), an architecture student, hailing from Bengaluru, at University of Cambridge told Deccan Chronicle that the latest decision has given a negative sentiment for Indian students as a whole.
