News: Easier entry into Britain with an MBA

Dear KCPian,

LONDON: Malaysian professionals who hold an MBA from any of 50 British-approved institutions will stand a better chance of working in Britain.

They will automatically get 75 points – the minimum qualifying mark under the point-based system in the Highly-Skilled Migrant Programme (HSMP), which came into force on Dec 5.

The move affects mostly doctors, lawyers, accountants, engineers and entrepreneurs, who must score at least 75 points to cross the HSMP hurdle.

Westminster City Council Chinese liaison officer David Tan said the Home Office had set the new rules and guidelines for the scheme, with the HSMP category designed to attract people with very special skills and who were highly trained and qualified to work in Britain.

Those with an MBA would be given preference above all others.

“Younger professionals will also chalk up more points,” he added.

Apart from the MBA provision, applicants will also score points based on other qualifications, previous earnings and age. (See graphics)

Tan said those awarded the MBA from one of the 50 Home Office-approved institutions from December 2004 onwards would be entitled to the 75 instant points.

However, those with MBAs from institutions outside the list or had graduated from an approved institution before the list was published could not apply under the MBA provision, he said.

Instead, they would have to apply under the standard sections of the HSMP application form.

Tan said the age factor was crucial, with those 27 years and below picking up a massive 20 points.

Another criterion is the mandatory English language requirement, where applicants need to have an International English Language Testing System certificate.

The redesigned HSMP scheme is the first part of a five-tier points-based system for all future migration to Britain for work or study, with the full system scheduled to be in place by April 2009.
