UK post study work visa for students
Office head of Student Migration Policy, has confirmed during the Universities
UK conference recently that it is highly likely that the new regulations will
apply to those students graduating in 2021 and that international students can
access any level of job in any sector, under the ‘unrestricted’ rights. The
students will need to be in the country when they make the application to
switch from the student route into the graduate route.They can then switch from
this route into the skilled worker sponsored route, in due course, and there
will be no access to benefits while on the graduate route.
The Home Office expects the new rule on reintroduction of UK post study work visa for international students to become law in the first half of 2021. Students on a Tier 4 visa when the rule becomes law will become eligible for the post-study work rights. The new move comes amid the wider context of immigration changes as the country leaves the European Union.
