The most fundamentally draining thought of a university student is the payment of the tuition fee. It is extremely difficult to handle job and classes at the same time and only some are able to pull it off without compromising on their grades. International students worry about the problem even more and since their visas are restricted to study only, they are not able to find meaningful jobs to pay the tuition themselves. UK and Boris Johnson might just have the solution to that!
UK is not famous for providing scholarships to students; whether local or international, and thus the fee rises up to huge amounts that can be a problem to pay. But there are more than 400,000 international students studying in the UK because of the quality of their education, some of them Pakistanis.

Now that UK would be entering the post-Brexit era, the government plans to introduce laws that would enable the country to provide a more global outreach to the UK by extending study visas by 2 years converting them to work visas so that any loans taken can be returned back in the 2 years and more students could be encouraged to come to UK and experience the high level of education on offer there.
The new policy is to come into effect from next year and the aim is to increase the number of students studying from 460,000 to 600,000 in the next 10 years. This will increase the number of opportunities for international students and may well improve their grades when they would have a 2 year time period to give back any loans taken rather than worrying about them during their studies. It seems to be a good fit for Pakistanis planning to study in the UK as well!
