UK Tier 1 - Post-Study Work Extension Visa

UK Tier 1 - Post-Study Work Extension Visa

The Tier 1 - Post-Study Work Extension Visa is specifically for international graduates who have studied at recognised institutions in the UK to stay and look for work without the need for a sponsor.

As the Tier 1 - Post-Study Work Extension Visa category is now closed for new applicants, new international graduates may take the Tier 2 (General) eligibility assessment to determine if they will be able to stay in the UK. However, extensions are possible for current post-study work visa holders.

Employers seeking to sponsor or hire foreign workers can sign up for UK Corporate Visa Services.
