From BBC News:

Rules allowing non-European students to stay in the UK after attending further education colleges should be reviewed, a government advisory panel says.

The Migration Advisory Committee says it is concerned students can obtain two-year visas regardless of the standard of the teaching or degree.

The rules form part of the points-based scheme to attract and retain highly-qualified and skilled workers.

The government said it would consider the MAC report’s findings.

Immigration minister Phil Woolas said: “The points-based system is a powerful and flexible tool which means that businesses can recruit the skilled foreign workers that the economy needs, but not at the expense of British workers, nor as a cheaper alternative to investing in the skills of the existing workforce.”
