|UK Post-study Work Visa Deadline Extended. by Capital2021(m): 3:00pm On Jun 25, 2021|
The entry deadline to qualify for the new UK post-study work (PSW) visa has been extended. The move has been welcomed by international students enrolling at UK universities. The Post study visa allows overseas students to work, or look for work, for three years after completing their studies.
To qualify for the visa, international students previously had to be in the UK by 21 June 2021 if they began their studies in autumn 2020. By extending this deadline to 27 September this year, the Home Office aims to accommodate those international students still studying remotely in their home countries due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
This extension means that international students have more time to prepare to arrive in the UK and still be eligible for the graduate route visa. Students will also have access to Covid-19 vaccines once in the UK if they register with a doctor after they arrive.
The graduate route visa was introduced to help international graduates from UK universities begin their careers in Britain. Graduates do not need a job offer to apply for the visa and there is no minimum salary to be eligible. Once granted the visa, graduates can work flexibly and switch jobs as required, according to the UK Home Office.
