UK Visa Plan for Top Researchers

International Edu News

A shake-up of visa regulations to attract more top scientists is on the cards for the UK. A fast-track visa route is to be launched later this year in the wake of feedback that Brexit was discouraging European Union students and researchers to enrol in the UK.
The new fast-track route will be designed to attract elite researchers and specialists in the fields of science, engineering and technology, according to a UK government statement.

The statement said that UK, even after leaving EU, would continue to support science and research. The government has set a number options to be discussed with institutions and universities.

These include abolishing the cap on the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa; expanding the pool of UK research institutes and universities able to endorse candidates; removing the requirement to hold an employment offer before arrival; and an accelerated path to settlement and full access to the job market for dependants.
