On 12 March 2024, the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) was commissioned by the Home Office to conduct a rapid review of the Graduate Route visa, to be concluded swiftly by 14 May 2024.

In response to the Home Office, the Chair of the MAC, Professor Brian Bell, noted: ‘the timescales for this review are much shorter than a normal commission. As such, this will substantially limit the quality and quantity of evidence that we can provide’.

With the goal of improving the available evidence in order to support better policymaking, the Higher Education Policy Institute, Kaplan, and the National Union of Students jointly asked London Economics to consider the impact of the Graduate Route visa.
