UK: Graduate Immigration Route Introduced
The United Kingdom will offer International students an opportunity to stay and work, or look for work in any skill level for a maximum period of two years after completing Bachelors degree or above, the Government announced on 11 September 2019. The new graduate immigration route, which enables students to remain further two years after their studies, will be launched from summer of 2021, meaning any student graduating in the summer of 2021 or after can apply for the route. To be eligible to apply, the student must hold a valid TIER 4 student visa at the time of application. The announcement has come as a part of ongoing Brexit preparation.
