New Visa Route

There is a new Visa route open concerning Graduates. We have outlined the new changes below.

The Graduate route

A new immigration route has opened 1 July 2021, allowing international graduates to kick-start their careers in the UK after they have finished their studies at a UK university.

The Graduate route is an unsponsored route which provides an opportunity for talented international graduates who have been awarded their degree from a UK university to stay in the UK and work, or look for work, at any skill level for at least 2 years.

The new route, part of the points-based immigration system, will help attract the best talent from around the world and ensures that businesses can recruit the most highly qualified from across the globe to complement the skills already in the UK.

Individuals who already have permission as a dependant of a Student who is applying on this route can also apply to extend their permission as a dependant on this route; other types of dependants are not permitted on this route.

The Graduate route is not a route to settlement.
