Improvements to Government procedures for renewing visas for overseas-based academics are highlighted

13 May 2013

The UK’s national academies have written a joint letter to university Vice-Chancellors explaining new changes designed to improve the often slow and opaque arrangements, and reduce the bureaucracy involved in renewing the visas of overseas-based academics working in the UK, especially Tier 1 applicants. These changes were adopted by the Government as a result of pressure from academic bodies, including the British Academy.
