POST-STUDY WORK VISAS
EDM #243
Tabled 06 July 2015
2015-16 Session
That this House supports the re-opening of the Tier 1 (post-study work) route to enable foreign students to remain in the UK; recognises the benefit of allowing qualified, hard-working people to apply for the right to live and work in the UK; acknowledges the contribution that students from outwith the EU make to the UK's economy and society; notes that in Scotland there have been overwhelmingly positive cross-sector and cross-party approval to proposals to re-introduce the post-study work visa; further notes that the Scottish Government has gathered over 100 signatures from professors and business executives in support of the re-introduction of the post-study work visa; and urges the Government to reconsider its approach to immigration policy for the benefit of each constituent nation of the UK.
