Sounds like if you are currently on HSMP and wanting to extend your stay (under Tier 1) you will be affected by the new rules unless you apply before April 6. Would that be the correct conclusion?

having read the proposed legislation, seems to me professional qualifications that are currently deemed Masters level will continued to be seen this way and pick up the full 35 points....also the income bands won't change other than <20k getting zero

any thoughts?

Hi Bomber_dave

What paragraph in the proposal leads you to think professional qualifications that are currently deemed masters level will continue to be seen this way?

Thanks

I am not sure people with BSc (Hons.) 4 years degree from within UK and currently on WP would fit into all this? Will their education will not be considered acceptable according to the new rules?
