APPG Co-Chairs respond to Migration Advisory Committee report on Graduate route

The Government’s independent Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) has published the report from its rapid review into the Graduate route, commissioned by the Home Secretary in March.

Commenting on the report, Paul Blomfield MP and Lord Bilimoria, Co-Chairs of the APPG for International Students, said:

“The Migration Advisory Committee’s report is clear: the Graduate visa has achieved the Government’s objectives and should remain in its current form. We must now end the debate on its future which has been damaging recruitment.

“We need a clear and unequivocal commitment from the Government to the future of the Graduate route, and more support for international students in order to maximise its benefits for them, for employers and for communities.”
