UK government Granting free visas to international students. In a major boost for students, the UK government has today announced a new two-year post-study work visa, expanding opportunities for talented international students to build successful careers in the UK.
The new ‘Graduate’ route will be open to all international students who have valid UK immigration status as a student and have successfully completed a course of study in any subject at undergraduate level or above at 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.
This builds on UK government action to help recruit and retain the best and brightest global talent, as well as opening up opportunities for future breakthroughs in science, technology and research and other world-leading work that international talent brings to the UK.
Home Secretary Priti Patel said:
The new Graduate Route will mean talented international students, whether in science and maths or technology and engineering, can study in the UK and then gain valuable work experience as they go on to build successful careers. It demonstrates our global outlook and will ensure that we continue to attract the best and brightest.
Sir Dominic Asquith, British High Commissioner to India, said: This is fantastic news for students, who will now be able to spend more time in the UK after completing their degree, allowing them to gain further skills and experience.
The UK is home to some of the best higher education institutions in the world and continues to welcome international students. Last year alone we saw a massive 42% increase. This exciting announcement will help ensure that the United Kingdom remains one of the best destinations for students across the world.
The UK welcomes genuine students from the rest of the world for the positive contribution they make to the UK. Student num have significantly increased over the last three years, reaching almost 22,000 in the year ending June 2019. This was a 42% increase on the previous year – and almost 100% higher than three years ago.
This announcement follows the creation of a new fast-track visa route for scientists and the removal of the limit on PHD students moving into the skilled work visa route, which collectively aims to cement the UK as a science superpower and a world-leader in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) sector.
