To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Williams of Trafford on 27 September (HL2847), whether students from Nepal must have their applications to study in the United Kingdom vetted in Delhi?; and if so, whether in assessing students from Nepal consideration is given as to whether Nepal needs students with the degrees the students wish to pursue.

Since March 2008, all Entry Clearance applications made in Nepal have been considered by UK Entry Clearance Officers based at the visa section in New Delhi. This includes applications to study in the UK. Entry Clearance Officers consider student applications in accordance with the Immigration Rules. These rules do not include any consideration of whether Nepal needs students with the degrees that the students wish to pursue.
