CUSU welcomes the UK Governments re-introduction of Post-Study Work visas for international students who begin studying in the UK from 2020/21.
While international students already studying or beginning their studies this year will not benefit from this proposal we feel this a massive step in the right direction and offers great opportunities for our future graduates. However, there is still much more to be done for international students, including addressing the health surcharge and salary restrictions, etc. CUSU will continue to support and advocate for the rights of international students.
