According to some reports, there are many job openings due to the lack of labour in a number of UK industries, and many Indian students who are qualified for these positions are choosing to apply. So far 10% or so of students get their visas converted to skilled worker visas and are working normal jobs.
After only a few months in the UK, many students are getting their student visas changed to skilled worker visas as many Indian students are qualified for these positions. The conversion is depending on their potential as future employees. This will also help them to extend the permit further in future. The majority of these students have backgrounds in nursing and the healthcare industry. They are therefore qualified for such professional employment as well.
It is beneficial for students who want their work permits more quickly. Many students come to the UK with the intention of working and some students are already qualified in the Indian healthcare sector. Their main goal is to move to the UK and obtain employment.
The UK has just disclosed that it has awarded 1,17,965 sponsored study visas to Indian students in one year until June 2022, a 215% increase from 2019, when only 37,396 sponsored study visas were issued. This information was made public by the British High Commission.
