Graduate visa


The Graduate Visa (formerly known as the Post Study Work Visa) is open to those students who have successfully completed their course and who have valid Student or Tier 4 permission when they apply on or after 1 July 2021.

This means that if you have successfully completed your course, have valid leave to be in the UK and submit your Graduate Visa Application from within the UK, you should be eligible for The Graduate Route.

You should only submit your Graduate Visa Application after you have received an email from the UCLan Student Immigration and Compliance Team (SICT) confirming that the Home Office have been notified of your successful course completion.

Please visit the gov.uk Graduate Visa webpages for the most recent information on the Graduate Route and to check the current eligibility criteria.
