This week the main opposition Conservative party — six points ahead of the incumbent Labour party in the most up-to-date poll opinion polls — launched its election manifesto promising to slash immigration and the influx of non EU students by imposing deterrent bonds.  

The Conservatives are favourites to win the general election on 6 May and look set to follow the party’s traditionally tough line on immigration.

A 131-page election manifesto released by leader David Cameron emphasised that it will set out “an annual limit on the number of non-EU economic migrants admitted into the UK to live and work”.

On those aspiring for higher education, the document said: “A Conservative government will strengthen the system of granting student visas so that it is less open to abuse.”

Labour has recently introduced a series of clampdowns on immigration and student visas including new rules for international colleges.
