Britain’s Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is considering taking action against international students taking ‘low quality’ degrees and bringing dependents along. Downing Street has given information about this. The Prime Minister’s spokesperson said that this is being considered because UK In India, the number of migrants has reached a record number. This number has reached a record five lakh. However, it has not been told by the spokesperson what they mean by low quality degree and what policies have been made regarding it.
The migration advisor of the government has warned that if action is taken against foreign students, it will leave many universities in poverty.

A large number of Indians are also included in these migrants.
Indian students will be affected
The number of migrants was 1,73,000 in 2021, which increased to 5,04,000 this year. Foreign students have contributed a lot in this. The number of Indians is more in these foreign students, because Indians are on top in the number of foreign students studying in Britain. Chinese students are on the second number. If the British government takes action against foreign students, then it is going to have a direct impact on Indians.
