It just seems so baffling and unfair to me that hundreds of thousands of unskilled workers from Eastern Europe can simply migrate to Britain so easily and without any barriers. Some live in public benefits and hardly contribute to the economy.
I just think it is SO unfair that, as an international student, I will have to leave Britain as soon as I graduate, unless I am some valuable engineer with a PhD or earning millions of pounds. We international students spend on average £100,000 for our degree programmes, travel thousands of miles away from our home countries and of course we make a substantial contribution to Britain's universities. By the time we leave uni, we are skilled, entrepreneurial graduates and yet we cannot stay in the UK or even get any job or internship and thousands of Europeans with no skills or qualifications are free to settle here.
Britain, please sort out your immigration policies!

Well, surely that applies to the whole of the EU, not Britain in particular? It's no secret that Britain is unhappy with the 'free movement' laws of the EU. These 'unskilled workers' are migrating from within the EU, so I don't actually think they're migrating as such? Someone correct me on this?
While it may seem unfair, it's the EU that has caused this not Britain in particular.
However, I don't see what is stopping you getting a job in the UK after you graduate? If you are willing to find a company who can sponsor you to do this?

You should be able to apply for immigration, although depending on where you are, you might need a visa.
We've had problems with foreign students, namely third worlders, using student visas to illegally immigrate here after supposedly attending so called 'universities' like London Met.Last edited by Snagprophet; 07-03-2013 at 17:47.
