Why is the MAC reviewing the Graduate route?

In March 2024, the MAC was asked by the Home Secretary to undertake a rapid review of the Graduate route with the aim of establishing whether it was ‘meeting its wider objectives, including those of attracting and retaining the best and brightest students to the UK and supporting excellence in UK higher education.’ The Home Secretary also wanted to ensure ‘that some of the demand for study visas is not being driven more by a desire for immigration rather than education.’

The MAC reported its recommendations on 14 May 2024.
