Chinese students who study in Britain won't be affected much by new rules on the right to work announced on Monday by James Brokenshire, the security and immigration minister.

Beginning in August, students from outside the European Union who come to study at publicly funded further education colleges will lose the right to work for up to 10 hours a week.

More measures will be introduced in the fall, including preventing college students from applying to stay on in Britain and work when they finish their studies, unless they leave the country first.
