UK | New Graduate immigration route for international students announced

On July 01, 2021, the UK Government announced ‘The Graduate Route’.

Salient features of the Guidance are as follows:

  • The Graduate route provides an opportunity for international students who have been awarded their degree to stay in the UK and work, or look for work, at any skill level for 2 years, or 3 years for doctoral students.
  • For the first time, a majority of applicants to the graduate route will be able to apply in a fully digital way, using the “UK Immigration: ID Check” smartphone app. Successful applicants will be issued an e-Visa and be able to access this status whenever needed to prove their rights in the UK.
  • The Graduate Route is a points-based immigration system which will aide talented international students to have the opportunity to start their careers in the UK at the highest levels of business, science, technology and the arts.
