There has been call for re-introduction of post study work visa, which has seen massive build across Scotland which would specifically help the Indian students who wish to Study in United Kingdom.

For the reintroduction of the visa to Scotland has gathered nearing 257 signatures which includes 25 publically funded colleges of Scotland, the Scotland sector body colleges, Scotland Universities, the representative body for 19 higher education institutions belonging to Scotland and representatives belonging to 64 businesses.

The move comes just before the 1st full meeting of the cross party steering group on the post study work, which does examine the ways to bring the post study route to Scotland.

Post study work visa( UK Tier 1) was abolished by the govt of UK in April 2012, which led to 50% dip in Indian students who visit British universities for higher education.

The number of new entrants to (HEIs) Scottish Higher Education institutions from India has feel by 63% during the year 2010-2011 and 2013 to 2014.

Presently above 2000 students belonging to India are Studying in Scotland.

As per the study conducted by the Strathclyde University, it is estimated that international students who contribute £188 million to Scotland universities directly and further £321m to wider Scottish economy.

Humza Yousaf, Scotland Minister for Europe and International development added that Scotland govt would continue to push Westminster for reintroduction of visa even though their exist disappointing lack of engagement on the issue.

We have been working for reintroduction of route to post study work and allow the talented students to remain as well as contribute to the Scottish economy for several months, but they have witnessed disappointing lack of engagement from government of UK. The signatories belonging to UK colleges have backed the statement of support, Yousuf added.

In an exclusive interview to the media, Yousuf  has said Scotland began Fresh Talent working in Scotland Scheme visa in the year 2006 which does enable the students form the Scottish institutions to remain in Scotland for 2 years to work and also gain further experience.

This particular scheme ran between 2005 to 2008, when it subsumed into UK wide Tier 1 (post study work) visa.

Yousaf added, Scotland requires immigration. It requires bright students belonging to India to visit and study in its 19 universities which have world class facilities and then stay back and work to help develop its economy. The population of Scotland is rapidly ageing and hence it leads to acute shortage of the skilled workers. We require bright immigrants from India, in order to fill in.
