@Otto_English commented: “This policy will significantly damage the funding of UK universities as international students go elsewhere. “That means that a generation of Britons will pay more to go to college and university and that it will become the preserve of the rich.”
@chymaker said: “Sadly majority of their family members fill up the care workforce that UK so badly needs but cut your noise to spite your face all in name of Conservative brand of Politics.”
@Purple_Chaos_ tweeted: “Everyone asking why students would bring family members to the UK. “You do realize that a lot of grad students are in their 20s-30s & may actually have partners & kids, right? International students literally subsidize UK higher education. This is such a terrible policy.
