UK govt has finally realized they are diverting students to other countries which is odd

Sooner or later they had to take this issue into consideration. Its never too late to re-consider work permit visa policy for students doing masters or graduation. However, for now, international students will have to make do with a slight relaxation in the rules.

They realized at the right time when most of the students are put their UK card off the move and moving on to Australia, Canada, and Germany. Jan onwards they will give students work permit visa of 12-24 months 

According to immigration experts, this change is the result of a prolonged dialogue between UK universities and the government. As student visas, known as Tier-4 visas, are granted for the duration of the course plus a few months, it hampered the ability of international students to look for jobs in the UK. For instance when student completes his Master coursework and after completion of thesis he was only be given 4 months and even those months students were sure they won’t get extension because of strict visa policy but now UK government has changed it to flexible 12-24 months work permit

International students in the UK will soon enjoy more flexibility in switching over to work visas, with new immigration rules set to be introduced from January 11.

London mayor Sadiq Khan has advocated a new category of post-study work visas. In his blueprint paper—’Immigration, a future approach’, Khan had pointed to dwindling international student numbers. His suggestion was that a post-study work visa should be distinct from the Tier-2 route and should enable students to work in the UK for 12-24 months after graduation.
As per the new rules, foreign students can switch over to Tier-2 visa (or skilled worker visa) as soon as they complete their course. According to current norms, they must wait until they obtain a degree to apply for the Tier-2 visa. This gave students only a small time frame to find a job while still in the UK.

If you can afford cup of coffee, you can surely buy Iphone X: Tim Cook

Apple is expecting to make more money this holiday season than ever. It is expected to make as much as $87 billion in revenue in three months out of which iPhone X will be responsible for $30 billion sales.

Tim Cook encourages people to buy an iPhone X by saying that “So if you think about that, that’s a few coffees a week. It’s less than a coffee a day at one of these nice coffee places.” Well, that must be some REALLY nice coffee place. Tim said this in the fiscal Q4 call where the major focus was iPhone X.

Tim Cook is right in a way. As if you get the iPhone X through Apple upgrade program, you’ll get it for $56 a month. If we break it down, that is less than $2 a day. And a coffee surely costs you around the same amount of money.

“The iPhone X orders are very strong for both direct customers and channel partners, which as you know are lots of carriers throughout the world. As of a few minutes ago, the first sales started in Australia. I’m told we had several hundred people waiting at the stores in Sydney, and I’m getting similar reports from stores across that region.”
