The Tier 1 Post-study work visa ended in 2012. The new visa for post-study work that will be introduced in the summer of 2021 is known as the Graduate Route visa. This is a work visa route for those students with valid Tier 4 or Student Route visa leave who have successfully completed and achieved a degree or other relevant qualification from an approved UK higher education provider. Applications open on 1 July 2021.

For more information, please visit the International Student Support (ISS) website. Alternatively, submit a Compass enquiry and an ISS Adviser will help you.
