If you want to stay in the UK after graduating, you can apply for a post study work visa.
Types of visa:
- Graduate visa
- Skilled worker
- Start up
You cannot extend a Graduate visa, however, you may be able to switch to a different visa, for example a Skilled Worker visa.
Book a visa session
If you are unsure of what type of visa you need or the documentation to provide, you can book a graduate work visa Q&A session.
During these sessions you can ask about what type of visa would be best for you and learn more about the work visa process.
Before attending a session it is important to watch the UKCISA video. This session breaks down how the Graduate Route works and who is eligible, and what other post study work options are available to you.
Students with tuition fee debt
Please note that the University will not report course completion to UKVI of any students who have tuition fee debt. Students with tuition fee debt will not receive their degree award and cannot be reported as successfully completed a degree course for the purposes of the Graduate visa. If you have tuition fee debt you must pay it before your current student visa expires to be able to apply for the Graduate visa.
