Indian students lose right to bring family to UK
The UK government has announced that international students, including Indians, will no longer be able to bring family members over. This is part of measures to bring down annual net migration, which reached a record in 2022.
The new changes to the student visa route will apply to overseas master’s students at British universities. However, it will not affect international students on postgraduate research routes such as PhDs, whose training often lasts between three to five years. The changes are set to come into effect in January 2024.
