Immigration figures driven by study
by Susie Hughes at 12:15 01/09/20 (News on Business)
Recent migration figures for year end March 2020 show that increases in net migration and immigration are being driven by an increase in non-EU immigration for study.
The Government figures from the ONS also show that immigration to the UK for work reasons remains well below its peak in mid-2016 and the number of EU citizens coming to the UK for work is at its lowest level since 2004.

Kate Shoesmith from recruitment body REC, said: Its vital that employers have access to the skills they need to grow and adapt to the new normal. Although it is likely that more people will be looking for new jobs, many will not immediately have the skills to fill these roles.

"So its worrying that the number of people were coming to work in the UK was low, even before the pandemic. Firms need to know that the new immigration system will be flexible enough to be help fix the skills shortages affecting the construction, IT and social care sectors in the short term or we risk stalling the economic recovery."
