New visa rules make the UK a great choice for study
The UK government has announced a new two-year post-study visa scheme, transforming how talented international students are able to build successful careers in the UK. The new ‘Graduate’ immigration route will be available for all international students with valid immigration status, who have completed a course of study at undergraduate level or above.
The new visa gives a two-year opportunity to find work that builds on qualifications and gives valuable international work experience.
