UK Foreign Students
The former cabinet minister of the UK, Lord Heseltine stated that international students should be exempted from government plans concerned with reducing net immigration rate to the country. 

Non-European Union students should be excluded from the immigration figures to shun the chance of affecting country’s universities, the UK’s ex-deputy prime minister added.

Lord Heseltine pronounced that the idea of not attracting overseas students would lead to lessen the finance to the UK. He added that students who have done their graduation at the UK’s educational institutions would become ambassadors for the country. 

Moreover, he marked that the government should recognize that they are lots of foreign students enrolled in UK’s universities and business schools who are considered as a great asset to the UK both educationally and financially.

The recent statistics of Home Office revealed that the study-related visas had escalated by six percent, which represented 219,053 by the end of March 2014. In addition, the number of sponsored visa applications related to study rose by one percent representing 209,011 and a seven percent rise is observed in the sponsored visa applications for the university sector, accounting for 168,075. It also unveiled that more number of students are headed from China, Brazil, and Malaysia.
