Key Points

  • The United Kingdom intends to reduce student migration numbers beginning in 2024


The United Kingdom (UK) government introduced new restrictions on student visa routes. Under these restrictions, the government aims to cut the net migration number and limit the number of family members that international post-graduates are permitted to bring to the country.

The UK will introduce further restrictions for overseas students intending to switch from a student visa route to a long-term work visa route. The government will also review the required funds for students and dependents entering the country. These measures will take effect at the start of January 2024.
