There are no caps on the number of international students permitted to come to the UK. The Student route is not a route to settlement. There are currently no plans to change this.

Upon course completion, students may apply to extend their leave in the UK, including under work routes if relevant requirements are met.

We keep all our immigration policies under constant review to ensure they best serve the UK and reflect the public’s priorities.
