What is the UK post-study work visa for graduates?

The UK post-study work visa allows international students to stay in the United Kingdom after graduation in order to find work, for up to 2 years.

The new visa rules will come into effect for all international students that begin their studies in autumn 2020 or later. During the first 2 years after graduation, PSW visa holders can work in any job they can find, and the goal is for them to transition into a general work visa afterwards.

The opportunity to stay and work for 2 years after graduation makes the UK an attractive destination for students seeking to start their international career. Few other countries in Europe offer such good conditions for their foreign students.


Can you work in the UK after graduation?

Yes: The new post-study work visa rules will allow you to work in the UK after graduation.

From September 2020 any student enrolling at a UK university can stay in the UK after graduation for up to two years in order to look for work related to their degree or course. This applies to graduates of all higher education providers that are recognised as ‘licensed visa sponsors’ (see the full official list 

The visa requirements for those graduates are expected to be the same as their original student visa rules, so unless your personal circumstances have changed, it should be automatic.

This applies to undergraduate (Bachelor), post-graduate (Master) and even PhD graduates.

The PSW visa is meant to give graduates more time to find a job after university; it does not affect how much you can work while you study.


Who is eligible for a UK post-study work visa?

Any international student on a Tier 4 visa who enrols at a UK institution from September 2020 will be eligible to stay in the UK after graduation to find a job.

This is an extension of rule changes which allowed PhDs to stay in the UK after graduation. The UK says this is because it wants to grow its STEM industry fields. From 2020 onwards the option will be open to all graduates.

Previously, graduates of Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees had only four months to stay and look for a job. With the new graduate visa rules, that has been improved to two years.


When do the post-study work rules come into effect?

The new PSW rules will be open to all students, on Tier 4 visas, who are accepted onto a course in the 2020 intake or later. So, if you’re thinking of applying to a course in the UK starting in September or October 2020, these are the rules that would apply to you when you graduate.

However, keep in mind that visa rules can change at any time, and that individual circumstances may be relevant. Make sure to follow public announcements for any future changes.
