UK Graduate Visa

This visa category provides an opportunity for international graduates to extend their residence in the UK following the completion of their studies.

Qualification Criteria:

To be eligible for the Post-Study Work Visa, you must meet the following conditions:
– You must be present in the UK.
– You hold either a current Student visa or a Tier 4 (General) student visa.
– You have completed an undergraduate degree, postgraduate degree, or another qualifying course of study on your Student or Tier 4 visa.
– Your academic institution has notified the Home Office of your successful course completion.

Advantages of the Visa:

– Pursue a career in a wide range of jobs.
– Search for prospective employment.
– Start your own business.
– Remain in the UK with your partner and children, provided they meet eligibility.
– Participate in volunteer work.
– Travel outside the UK and return.

Duration of Stay:

The Post-Study Work Visa is valid for 2 years for most graduates, extending to 3 years for those with a Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral degree.

Path to Permanent Residence:

While the Graduate visa itself is not renewable, it may be possible to transition to another visa category, such as the Skilled Worker visa, which could lead to settlement in the UK.

Decision Timeline:

Decisions are generally made within an 8-week period, and you are permitted to stay in the UK while awaiting the outcome.
