How does new rules affect Indian students who plan to study in USA? NO EFFECT AT ALL!

                      Why Worry-


With Donald Trump taking over as US President, efforts to make the H-1B visa more restrictive -that had largely failed during Obama’s presidency – are gathering pace.

Some US senators are planning to introduce a new legislation that would ensure that the best and brightest students educated in the US would receive preference for an H-1B visa. Currently, H-1B visas are used by many Indian IT companies to send specialist employees to the US on work.

H-1B visa category is the one that allows foreign personnel to work in the US for periods of three years and more. Indian IT companies have been the largest recipients of H-1B visas.

Another bill was introduced recently that would require US employers to pay those who come under the H-1B visa program at least $100,000 a year, up from a current minimum of $60,000. The bill also seeks to remove an exemption clause that allows authorities to skip troublesome paperwork if H-1B applicants had the equivalent of a Master’s degree or higher.

How does this affect Indian students who plan to study in USA? NO EFFECT AT ALL! For those who wish to study Master’s in USA, it is a wonderful opportunity since the number of applicants for H1B lottery will be down (since applicants from India without an MS degree may not be permitted to apply) and chances of getting ‘picked up’ from the H1B applicants lot is much higher. This is GOOD NEWS for those who want to study in USA now, more than ever before! Why wait? Start your process now with the ever-reliable Manhattan Review for Fall admissions. You could land in USA in as early as six months!

Want to fly to USA?


ACICS (Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools) is one of the accrediting bodies in USA, that accredits (similar to recognition) certain programs and colleges/universities in USA. Just a few days back, the US Dept. of Education has withdrawn the recognition of accreditation powers to ACICS.

Due to this withdrawal, programs, colleges and universities accredited by ACICS cannot be considered as properly accredited – which is a bench mark for most students to study in those respective colleges/programs.

Overall, ACICS gave accreditation to about 250 colleges, which include about 130 institutions that offer ESL programs. Balance are those that offer higher education (other colleges and universities), that are certified by SEVP, to recruit international students.

According to industry sources, ACICS lost its accreditation recognition because it has accredited some colleges and universities that are considered as ‘visa mills’ and which have conducted their activities fraudulently.

One interesting point to note is that national accrediting bodies such as ACICS are not popular and hence, students & universities alike prefer accredited institutions from Regional accrediting bodies and professional accrediting bodies. Most importantly, getting a transfer from an institution that is accredited to a national body such as ACICS to a regionally accredited institution is not accepted because of quality and standards issues.

There is nothing to worry about, since most Indian students go to Master’s and Bachelor’s level programs that are recognized by accrediting bodies such as ABET, AACSB etc. Since most of the students DO NOT go to ESL programs, there is nothing to worry about withdrawal of recognition for ACICS.

Oh, UK –!

Students from the rest of the world have been flocking to UK universities for decades, eager to get the most out of doing a degree there. But now, things are different.

There have been recent reports that the government is considering cutting international student numbers by nearly half in an effort to meet the immigration targets set by Prime Minister Theresa May.

Students from outside the EU have already begun to turn away from the UK and consider more welcoming countries with renowned universities, such as the US. And that’s because of strict visa rules introduced when May was Home Secretary.

The main reason for these dwindling figures is the legislation introduced in 2012 that tightened the rules on foreign students staying on once they had completed their degrees.

Though our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged May to open up British universities to more of the country’s students and liberalize the visa system, students are now facing strict conditions.

For non-EU students such as those from India, the rules on moving from a student visa to a work visa are pretty strict. Essentially one must have a graduate job, with a graduate salary, with a licensed Home Office employer. These criteria are hard to meet. For example, the graduate salary needs to be a minimum of £20,800, which for a first job is pretty difficult, especially outside of London.

Currently, non-EU students can work part time for 20 hours a week and full time in vacations. If they go to a private college, they’re not allowed to work at all. This was one of the measures introduced last year in a Home Office “crackdown on visa fraud”, targeting students at “bogus” private colleges.

Unless students go to the UK as a single student and get a job during your time there, you would be   counted you as an immigrant. And many students are worried about studying in the UK, because of the prospect of not getting jobs before the deadlines and the state of UK economy.
