According to Indian stats, there are around 34,000 students pursuing studies in UK at present. British data which takes into account sub-graduates also show more than 50,000 Indian students studying in UK, the second largest after the population of Chinese students in UK.

The UK government has made its target quite clear. It wants to ensure that only serious students get admission into genuine colleges of UK and put a stop to all the bogus degree awarding institutions of the country.

This would also reflect in the work permit granted to post graduate students. Only those Non EU students who posses offer of skilled jobs from sponsoring employers will be allowed to stay back in UK.
