The United Kingdom government is making moves to ban students who breach immigration rules from coming back to the country for up to five years.
This decision is one of many steps taken by the UK government in recent times.
It is taken to curb illegal immigration, especially among the student population.
The new rules will apply to students who fail to adhere to visa rules.
they will be banned from returning to the UK and prevented from re-applying for student visas for up to five years.
This move has been met with mixed reactions, with some people in support of the ban and others against it.
The UK Border Agency (UKBA) is in charge of enforcing the ban on students who breach immigration laws.
The agency will keep records of students who have been banned from the country and prevent them from re-entering the UK.
The ban will undoubtedly have an impact on genuine students who have not breached immigration laws.
This could also discourage some international students from choosing to study in the UK.
