Other countries to benefit from the UK's closed door policy

Following the tightening of visa rules by the British government, the UK is sending out the message that international Non-EU students are not welcome here. This represents an opportunity for New Zealand, Australia and even countries like Malaysia and Singapore, who are trying to build up their own education sector by attracting international students.

Australia is one country which recently overturned their own visa policy after finding that their economy was seriously affected. Stephen Connelly, the country's International Education Association Australia president saw the new visa changes in the UK as "a potential opportunity for Australia" because "students will look elsewhere."
