The Graduate Visa Route

The enables international students who have studied on Tier 4 or Student visa to remain in the UK to work, or look for work, for two years after graduation.

The Graduate route is unsponsored, meaning applicants do not need a job offer to apply. There is no minimum salary requirement nor cap on numbers. Graduates on the route will be able to work flexibly, switch jobs and develop their career as required, including聽self-employment.

It is not permitted to study on a course that is normally sponsored in the聽Student聽route, so聽this visa is聽not聽suitable for graduates progressing to further study, either at 六合彩现场直播 or elsewhere. These graduates should apply for further leave in the聽Student聽route.
