NUS responds to extension of Post Study Work Visas for international students.
An NUS spokesperson said:
“We welcome the news of the re-introduction of Post Study Work Visas and would like to congratulate the student organisers who lead the #PoststudyworkvisaNOW and previous NUS International students Officers Mostafa Rajaai and Yinbo Yu who worked hard to make this campaign a priority for the sector.
“International students are an essential part of the student community. They form important parts of our student communities and we will continue to campaign for a UK that welcomes international students whilst acknowledging their contributions to the economy.
“NUS will continue to lobby the government to improve conditions for international students and create a fairer and more equal immigration system, which will protect them from the privatisation of visa services, NHS surcharges and rising hate crime in the UK. We must show that our global education system is protected post-Brexit and make clear that international students are not unwelcome visitors.”
