British Council slams student visa policy:
The British government’s decision to toughen student visa guidelines could wreck higher education in the United Kingdom, says the director of the British Council. The organization, which promotes British education overseas, says the new rules will put Britain’s schools behind competitors in Canada, the U.S. and Australia. Britain’s new rules make it difficult for international students to work in Britain after graduation. The aim of the policy was to create more jobs for young Britons, but the British Council says it might threaten the economy long-term.
