Graduate visa overview
Post Study work, Graduate Visa
Our team of experienced immigration advisors is here to guide you through the application process and help you secure this exciting opportunity offered to international students in UK.
The post-study work visa, also known as the Graduate Route, is a new visa route for international students who have completed a degree at a UK university. This visa allows students to stay in the UK for two years after graduation to work or look for work, without the need for sponsorship from an employer. This is a great opportunity for students who want to gain work experience in the UK and enhance their career prospects.
To be eligible for the post-study work visa, international students must have completed a degree at a UK university at undergraduate level or above. They must have a valid Tier 4 student visa or a student visa at the time of application and must have successfully completed their degree.
Once the student has received their degree, they can apply for the post-study work visa within 2 years of their course completion date. The application fee for this visa is currently £700.
To apply for the post-study work visa, students must provide evidence of their degree, their English language proficiency, and their financial situation. They must also demonstrate that they have not breached any immigration laws during their time in the UK.
One of the benefits of the post-study work visa is that it provides students with the flexibility to work in any sector and at any level. They can work full-time, part-time, or be self-employed. Additionally, during the two-year visa period, they can switch to another visa category if they meet the eligibility criteria. Many of our clients have moved to a skilled worker visa from this scheme with a view to getting settlement after 5 years on that (or 10 years on a mixture of visas).
Our team of experienced immigration advisors can guide you through the post-study work visa application process, ensuring that you meet all the eligibility requirements and submit a strong application. We can help you with every step of the process, from gathering the necessary documents to preparing for the English language test.
