London, December 12:

UK Home Secretary Theresa May will insist that Britain is ‘open’ to overseas students.She will reassure universities that there will be no cap on the number of migrants who want to study.In a key speech on immigration, she is expected to outline ways the UK is still attractive to students, the Telegraph reports.

She is also expected to make it easier for postgraduate students to stay in the UK after their studies.However, May told the Financial Times that she is ‘definitely’ considering face-to-face interviews for overseas students, which could make it more difficult for them to study in the UK.

She also hit out at universities, saying they have a responsibility to make Britain more attractive to foreign students, the report said.“The universities have got a job here as well in making sure that people actually understand that we’re open for university students coming into the UK,” she told the newspaper.

“There’s a job here not just for the government, I think there’s a job for the universities as well to make sure that people know that we are open,” she added.According to the report, May is also expected to address concerns about tough visa restrictions on Chinese tourists, with plans to roll out more online applications and offer forms in Mandarin.

There have been a number of rows within the Coalition about immigration policy, with accusations that the Home Office''s tough restrictions are holding back growth.

Sources said that May, the Prime Minister, Vince Cable, the Business Secretary, and George Osborne, the Chancellor, have now reached an agreement on sounding more welcoming to students at the same time as remaining tough over security concerns, the report added. (ANI)
