Coimbatore: The recent introduction of Fresh Talent Initiative (FTI) by the United Kingdom for attracting academic excellence to its centers of learning has sparked a new streak of excitement among students in the country.

Notably, India occupies a huge chunk in the number of foreign students seeking career-based education offered by the universities in the UK. This was reported by the Business Line.

The FTI has allowed the student the facility of an extended visa. This meant that students could get a visa extending from one to two years after their graduation, which in turn enabled them to get jobs on their own, based on the strength of their academic records. Hithendra Cheetirala, general manager, GI Careers (UK), noted this. The institute is a career solution service provider for UK-based universities.
