    So basically I'm from India. Did IGCSE and A levels.
    I've applied to colleges in 4 different countries (USA, UK, Australia and India).
    I'm on a gap year currently.
    So I really want to do law and I know the UK has some top colleges.
    I've already received an offer from Leicester and waiting to hear back from 4 other colleges.
    Now, what I want to know about is the graduate prospects and visa situation for international students studying in the UK (specifically Indian students if you have the info, or if not, nvm, just international students will do).
    I know that the UK is cracking down on immigration and I know they recently passed a bill saying that international students have to return immediately to their home country after studying, but I've also seen reports suggesting that this is not the case and work permits are available to students.
    Now what exactly is the visa situation there? Can international students stay there and get work permits for a few years at least? And do law firms actually hire people from outside their own country? Sorry I sound uninformed, but I have tried doing research and all I could find were contradictory reports.
    I will be speaking to a few people who're friends of mine and either studied in the UK or are living there, but I would like to get a basic idea at least before I talk to them.
    Any response will be of great help.
    Thank you for taking the time to read this
    And thank you for your response.
