Gb: special visas for top graduates, snubbed Italian universities


The list of the 37 best universities in the world, none of them Italian, not even among the top 100 (ANSA)

 Italian universities snubbed in the match for privileged visas

that the British Tory government of Boris Johnson is preparing to guarantee to foreign recent graduates wishing to work in the future in highly specialized roles in the United Kingdom after Brexit.

This was confirmed by the media after the announcement made last week by the Ministry of Education in view of a scheme destined to come into force on May 30th.

    The new scheme, called High Potential Individual Visa, will in fact be reserved for those who have graduated from one of the

first 37 universities in the world recognized as such by the institutions that certify global quality records.

And in the ranking drawn up by the authorities across the Channel - compiled by comparing the data of the 3 rankings universally taken as a model (the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, the Quacquarelli Symonds World University Rankings, The Academic Ranking of World Universities) -

no general university Italian does not even appear in the top 100.

    The list, dominated by the US and with some Asian presences, includes only 5 European universities: two Swiss (the Polytechnics of Lausanne and Zurich), one French (the Ecole Normale of Paris) , one from Sweden (the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm) and one from Germany (the University of Munich, LMU).

    The stated goal of the High Potential Individual Visa is to attract new brains and skilled foreign talent to the island, beyond cheap labor.

Those who want to apply, however, will have to prove that they have at least 1,500 euros in a current account, as well as being able to pay 750 euros a year for health contributions.

But he will not need to undergo other bureaucratic formalities, as long as he graduated in the previous 5 years from one of the top universities.

Obviously, Italian students are not excluded ipso facto by passport: even for them the reference to the alma mater of origin will be valid, not the country of birth.
