From 1st July this year eligible international graduates will be able to apply to remain in the UK for a further two (or three if awarded a doctorate) years.
They will be able to work in any job without needing to be sponsored by an employer though they can later switch in to the skilled worker route if they find a suitable role.
Family members who are with them in the UK, and who are already their dependents, will be able to apply to remain here too.
This is a welcome introduction and something which has long been hoped for since the abolition of the previous post-study work route.
Please contact us for more information on the new route or on any other aspect of the immigration rules.
