Post-study Work Visa for International Students

Post-study Work Visa for International Students

Immigration, Politics, Radio, UK, Visa
Words: Fatima Nasir| Subbing: The introduction of stricter visa policies and altercations made to existing visa procedures in regards to post-study work visas in recent years has led to a decrease in international students coming to the United Kingdom for University. A study by the Chartered Association of Business Schools concluded an almost nine percent drop in non-EU international students intake. Business School Heads have stated in the report that international students are increasingly choosing other countries due to Britain's strict post-study work visa policies, which are becoming a 'turn off' and making UK an 'unattractive' and 'difficult' option for prospective students.

Words: Fatima Nasir | Subbing: Bella Dawe An increasing number of individuals from the LGBT community have been applying for asylum in the United Kingdom in recent years.

Business, Radio
Young people have been brought up in a generation of social media addiction. Everything is documented on the internet and people lay there life bare on these sites for anyone to see. This type of behaviour seems normal to millennials but now that they are entering the world of work, employers often go through their social media accounts and may find something that was not meant for their eyes. Anything controversial may spark doubt in the employer's mind and hinder the person's chances of getting a job. The Voice Of London spoke to students to see what they thought of employers going through their social media and if they've ever posted anything that might hurt their chances of getting employed. https://soundcloud.com/user-319093484/should-employers-go-through-your-social-media
