Boris Johnson relaxes UK immigration policy For Foreign Students

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has reversed the decision made in 2012 by then-Home Secretary of the United Kingdom, Theresa May, concerning international students.
        In 2012, May had made a policy that forced overseas students to leave Britain four months after concluding their degree but with the proposals reversed and announced by the Home Office, foreign students will

now be allowed to stay in the UK for two years after graduation to find a job of their choice. Under the proposals, there is no restriction on the type of jobs students would have to seek and no cap on numbers. According to BBC, Theresa May had introduced a hostile environment around migration rules, with the intention to reduce net migration. Boris Johnson, on the other hand, has vowed to remove the restriction and encourage the brightest and best to come, live and work in Britain. Many reactions have trailed the re-introduction of two years post-study visa in the UK. Chancellor Sajid Javid tweeted that the move was timely and that government should have reversed the policy years back.
