Hello Mrs.Donelan!

It is wonderful to be able to communicate during these tough times, and I know every university will be doing its best to impart world-class education. I am a prospective student from India holding offers from a couple of universities in the UK for my Post-Graduate study, and I am awaiting offers from another four which I expect should be coming out this month.

I have a few questions regarding the timelines and Visas:-

1) In a worst-case scenario where the pandemic doesn't dumb down by September 2020, will the course be deferred to accommodate the same?

2) In a scenario where I hold an offer from the college of my choice, and I cannot make it due to COVID-19, will universities be willing to consider the option to start in 2021 instead of 2020 with the same offer or will I have to re-apply?

3) I have noted that the visa policies for a student have changed with a permit to work for up to 2 years after education for international students undertaking undergraduate/postgraduate study starting in September 2020. Will there be any changes to these?

it would be nice if points 1 and 2 are addressed, as it would help me plan my student loans and visa processes accordingly.

Once again, Thank you very much for all the support provided. I very much look forward to pursuing my post-graduate in the United Kingdom.

Hiya,

Sorry the Minister wasn't able to get to your question today. She has answered something quite similar here though:

I hope that's helpful.
