Announcing details of tighter rules for international students from India and elsewhere, Britain on Wednesday said bogus students will find it difficult to gain entry and work here illegally.

Unveiling details of the points system for those wishing to earn British Citizenship from next year, Home secretary Alan Johnson said genuine students will continue to be welcome in the country.

The details comes days after UK suspended issuing student visas in north India, Bangladesh and Nepal, suspecting large scale irregularities.

The new regulations will ensure that students studying below degree level have a limited ability to work in the UK, and that their dependants cannot work here at all.
