UK government to reintroduce two-year post-study work visa

11 September 2019

The UK government has announced plans to reintroduce the two-year post-study work visa for international students.

The new plans will be introduced from next year and mean that all international graduates will be offered a two-year work visa after graduating from a UK university. Under the current plans, graduates are allowed to look for work for only four months.

Gavin Williamson, the Secretary of State for Education, said: "The important contribution international students make to our country and universities is both cultural and economic. Their presence benefits Britain, which is why we’ve increased the period of time these students can remain in the UK after their studies."

If you are interested in studying in the UK at undergraduate or masters level, arrange a free consultation at SI-UK in Rawalpindi, LahoreKarachi, Peshawar or Abbotabad today.Our international team can help answer all of your questions about visa requirements, courses and where to study.

 I believe my success is due to the great support provided by SI-UK. I was advised the right IELTS courses to attend and they also helped with my visa application. I really want to share with you my positive experience and I would definitely recommend SI-UK to my friends.
