Gyimah said he "welcomes UUK post-study work visa proposal", and that the forthcoming MAC report "offers us an opportunity to ensure our policy on student migration recognises the contribution that overseas students make".

English UK welcomed education agents from across Europe to Scotland on its recent spring inward mission, soon after Scotland's External Affairs Minister spoke out in favour of plans to re-introduce the two-year Post-Study Work visa should Scotland gain independence. Six Scottish centres were showcased to the visiting agencies.
