The UK Government has announced a two-year post-study work visa, similar to a scheme scrapped in 2011.
The new “Graduate Route” will be open to all international students starting their courses in September 2020 and graduating from an approved UK Higher Education Provider. The visa will allow eligible students to work, or look for work, in any career or position of their choice, for two years after completing their studies.
After two years, they will be able to switch to a skilled work visa if their job meets the qualifying criteria.
No more details are currently available.
