James Brokenshire, the UK's immigration minister, has announced two improvements to the UK's visa system in China. Mr Brokenshire says that the changes should make it easier for Chinese applicants to apply
for and obtain UK visas.
The changes are
•The 'mobile biometric service' will now be available to customers at all twelve of the UK's visa offices in China. Hitherto, the service has only been available in Shanghai and Beijing. The service visits offices and homes and collects biometric data from busy visa applicants who do not wish to visit the visa application centre.
•There will for an additional charge be a 24-hour premium visa service for most visitor and work visa applicants. 'The 24 Hour Super Priority Service' will now be available for applicants in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.
So quite different to the QS World University Rankings. I think readers should not concentrate too much on rankings since the choice of University should rather be based on the ideal course
for the student.

Please note that we do not and have never dealt with any of the Colleges in the list above or that follows. It has been reported on "THE" that the move came after an investigation
into fraud in English language testing. In addition many students were found to be working more than 20 hours or working when they should not have been because they attended
privately funded colleges. We deal with students that want a unique education experience at a UK University and do not
work with other higher education colleges. We are above all a professional enterprise and can be trusted to work with you to gain your placement.

According to a recent press article nearly 25% of postgraduate students in the UK are Chinese and the numbers are rising. That means there are nearly as many Chinese students on full time postgraduate courses in English Universities as there are British students.
According to figures from the Higher Education Funding Council of England (Hefce), 23% of students studying for masters-level degree courses are from China while 26% of students are
from the UK – a sign that English universities are increasingly relying on China to fill its courses.
