In 2019, the UK government announced that it will be reintroducing a 2-year post-study work visa which will be open to all international students who have completed a course of study at the undergraduate level or above, at an approved UK Higher Education Provider. The new ‘Graduate’ immigration route visa, it will be called, will be open to students who enrol on courses from this year on. This route will allow eligible students to work, or look for work, at any skill level or subject for two years after completing the study. After the two years, students will be able to switch onto the work permit visa if they find a job, which meets the skill requirement of the route.

If you are considering your options to study abroad and are going through the list of countries that you would like to study in, the year 2020 makes the UK an attractive destination as students who enrol on a course from this year on will get two years post-study work visa which will allow you to remain in the UK to gain work experience and or find a job and make the UK your home.
