VIDEO: UK Parliament Member Opposes Ban On Student Dependants

Carol Monaghan, a member of the United Kingdom Parliament, has disagreed with the new visa policy barring Nigerian Students and others from bringing members of their family as dependants on the student visa except under specific conditions.

Speaking at the parliament on Wednesday, Monaghan maintained that students made valuable contributions to the country's economy. 

"International students make an invaluable contribution to the economy," she added.

In a circulating video on Thursday, the parliament member added that many students who come to the UK look beyond their students and want their families to be involved in their experience.

She warned that if barred from bringing their families, international students will go elsewhere, which will affect universities already experiencing financial problems. 

"The reality is that many students who come into the UK look beyond their studies and want their families to be part of their experience.

"Withholding overseas students from bringing their families, many will opt to go elsewhere and any drop in international students numbers will cause further harm to universities that are already facing financial difficulties."
