The diplomat said that she views the move as positive for her country. "We know that the quality of Indian students is really high. So we want to attract the brightest and the best and that includes students from India," she said.
The UK Government on Wednesday announced a new two-year post-study work visa, expanding opportunities for talented international students to build successful careers in the UK.
The new 'Graduate' route will be open to all international students - including those from India - who have valid UK immigration status as a student and have successfully completed a course of study in any subject at undergraduate level or above at an approved UK Higher Education Provider.
The return of the two-year post-study work visa for international students was reintroduced by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson as part of a package of government measures to boost numbers of overseas students after Brexit, according to the British media reports.
