This will be favourable for students from Asian countries. I am curious to know how brexit plays out before seeing any spike in international students flocking to UK

I don't think brexit will make any difference to this law. Maybe european students will fall into this law category some day. For everyone else, those we currently refer to as "international students", the law will still be active in the event of brexit.

Wasn't this how it used to be? I guess they realized it doesn't really make that much of an impact, in the scheme of things. Offering these work visas would probably actually be better for many companies, because international students might be willing to work for comparably less than domestic grads.

Yes, they're basically doing away with the law that was passed a few years ago, and things should go back to how they were before, for the most part.

It's worth noting that this won't actually start until 2021, so the MBAs who started in fall 2019 will not be eligible.
