The UK government has announced a new two-year post-study work visa option for international students. This visa route expanding opportunities for talented international students to build successful careers in the UK. It’s a major boost for international students to opt to study in the UK.
This new ‘Graduate’ route will help all international students who have successfully completed a course in any subject at the undergraduate level or above at an approved UK Higher Education Provider and a valid UK immigration status as a student. The 2-year post-study work visa will allow eligible students to work, or look for work, in any career or position of their choice, for two years after the successful completion of their studies.
The ‘Post-Study Work visa’, the new Graduate route will launch for the 2020/21 (academic year) intake of students to university. Students have the option to switch onto the skilled work visa if they find a job that meets the skill requirement of the route after successful course completion.
