UK deliberately discriminate African students.

United Kingdom got High Potential Individual (HPI) visa which is aimed at attracting highly skilled graduates from universities outside UK to come and work in UK in various fields. Some of these fields includes science, technology and entrepreneurship have excluded African graduates. Perhaps it is a blessing in disguise to stop brain drain. We need these individuals to grow our African economy.

The UK will start taking applications for this opportunity on 30 May. It have listed about 40 institutions from the United States, France, China, Hong Kong, Australia, Germany, Canada and Japan feature but no African universities. Those who are successful will be given a 2-year work visa (3-year for those with a PhD) and can switch to other long-term employment visas, if they meet the eligibility requirements.

The UK government is using the ranking of universities as a criterion for engagements and look like no Africa University that meets that criteria.
