Indian students see record entries to UK universities as travel rules ease up

[vc_row][vc_column offset=”vc_col-lg-9 vc_col-md-9″ css=”.vc_custom_1452702342137{padding-right: 45px !important;}”][vc_custom_heading source=”post_title” use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_class=”no_stripe”][stm_post_details][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1630933980123{margin-bottom: 20px !important;}”]The UK’s Minister for Immigration Kevin Foster confirmed on 1 July – the day the new Graduate Route officially opened – that Covid concessions on visa rules around a requirement to be in the UK to study will be extended to 6 April 2022 for the next intake.

The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) acceptance figures, released on Tuesday, come days after India was moved off the Red List COVID-19 travel ban on to Amber.

This would have a big impact on Indian students planning to travel to Britain to take up their courses as they no longer need to quarantin in a government-managed facility for 10 days at considerable additional cost.

Instead, they can quarantine for the required 10 days at a chosen destination, which for many will be their university accommodation, or a friend or family home address.


“We know India being moved from the Red to Amber list will be a significant and welcome move for those Indian students due to travel to the UK soon. Those students should stay in touch with their university and be aware of the latest procedure for amber list arrivals to ensure a smooth arrival,” said Vivienne Stern, Director of Universities UK International, which represents over 140 universities.[/vc_column_text][stm_spacing lg_spacing=”80″ md_spacing=”80″ sm_spacing=”30″ xs_spacing=”20″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″ offset=”vc_hidden-sm vc_hidden-xs”][stm_sidebar sidebar=”527″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
