London sources stated that the UK government under Boris Johnson on Wednesday reinstated the two year post study work visa route for all international students who came to British Universities for their higher studies that were earlier scrapped by Theresa May seven years back. Boris Johnson said that reinstatement of this policy would allow students to unlock their potentials to begin careers in the UK.

Reportedly the new "Graduate" route, to be in place by next year, will be open to all overseas nationals who have valid UK immigration status as a student and have successfully completed a course of study in any subject at undergraduate level or above at a government approved UK higher education institution. Meanwhile the visa will allow eligible students to work, or crucially look for work, in any career or position of their choice, for two years after completing their studies.

Moreover Priti Patel, Home Secretary and the senior most Indian origin member of Johnson's cabinet, was quoted saying by a leading daily, "The new Graduate Route will mean talented international students, whether in science and maths or technology and engineering, can study in the UK and then gain valuable work experience as they go on to build successful careers." Perhaps Indian student groups in the UK also expressed their support for the reinstatement of a visa route they had been long campaigning for.
