Please spare 5-10 minutes today to help international students in the UK today!
This April the Government is introducing a wave of new regulations on international student visas including finally removing the right to a Post-Study Work Visa (PSW). The NUS International Students Campaign has decided to make a stand. We’re launching a new social media campaign TODAY called “International Students Against Immigration Changes” and a campaign called “Share Your Story.” Our objective - mobilise international students to make a big push against the removal of PSW this March and paint a narrative about student immigration in this country. To make a stand for the right to PSW and for a fairer immigration system.
The campaign page is https://www.facebook.com/IntCampaign and the campaign launches NOW running until the removal of PSW on April 6th.
Excitingly, UKCISA are firmly behind the campaign and will be helping to promote it. Feel free to read some of the stories written by officers around the country from Cardiff to Robert-Gordon.
Help promote the campaign today:
1) Tweet: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! NO to the removal of PSW and tough immigration rules. International students #shareyourstory at Facebook.com/intcampaign
2) Email your Students (See below for a sample email)
2) Post on Facebook (See below for a sample)
3) Post to the wall of your:
1) International Students Association (if you have one)
2) Cultural Societies: Indian, Chinese, Hong Kong, Pakistani, Vietnamese, Malaysian, Nigerian, Brazilian, Russian Bangladeshi societies, etc.
3) Postgraduate Societies and PG heavy departments.
4) Encourage your international office to promote this as well. (Tell them UKCISA are supporting this)
5) Do something locally if you have time!
The campaign will be run from today until the closure of the PSW in April. (Who knows, maybe we’ll hold a glowstick vigil for it.) Stories will be collated and delivered to top policy makers and politicians.
Are you an international student? Are you tired of the UK’s difficult and complex immigration rules? Have you been affected by the removal of the Post Study Work Visa? Did you know that this April, the UKBA will introduce even more regulations for international students and will remove the right to Post-Study Work in the UK?
Enough is Enough! Help the National Union of Students International Campaign make a stand! ! Like our campaign page at facebook.com/IntCampaign and if you have time, “Share your Story.” Tell us your difficulties finding jobs, funding yourself, applying for visas, and the positive impact you feel you’ve made in the UK.
