 Migrant Voice - PIE News covers MV's call for policy change on international students

On 16 July, PIE News wrote an article about Migrant Voice's call to the Home Secretary to bring the new Graduate Route for international students forward to 2020, so this year's graduates can benefit.

The call was part of a week of activities raising awareness about the struggles faced by many international students during Covid-19 and the unfair treatment some have faced from the Home Office.

“[International students] have had a particularly raw deal during the pandemic, and many want to stay in the UK after graduating and contribute to rebooting the economy,” our letter to the Home Secretary said.

The article also quoted Abagail Catania, one of the students who spoke out during the week of campaigning: “Allowing the class of 2020 to obtain this visa will not only make up for the time in enforced isolation or forced back to home countries, but also continue to benefit the UK economy.”
