The UK government plans to introduce tougher rules for overseas students coming to Britain to study “low quality” courses (“UK government to toughen student visa rules for ‘low quality’ courses”, 4 October). So these “low quality” courses are fine for British and European students but not international students? Where is the protection for British and European students?
This is yet another ill-thought plan by Theresa May’s government. What about students who have aspirations and a real hunger for education, but do not have the grades for one of the elite institutions? I used to be proud of the UK for being open to all student types, but feel now it is becoming an elite product for privately educated individuals. Where has May’s perspective of wider society gone?
