In view of the current changes to the immigrations rules, please I need some advise. I will be an Engineering BEng(Hons) graduate in 2010 and my current student visa expires in NOV 2010, by then i would have lived here on a student visa for 7 years continuously going through A levels in college, and now university. I am 23, and love living and want stay longer in the UK, all my friends, cousins etc are here
1) could I continue studying to a PG, MSc, PHD to make up 10 yrs to naturalise by 2013?? what are the rules concerning this...
2) the option of PSW seems appealing but does it count towards the 10 yrs
3) If I do get a work permit, after how many yrs would it be possible to apply for naturalisation,ILR or residency.
Pls, any response would be much appreciated. Thankyou
