UK Post-Grad Work Permit

Jun 22, 2020

The British Government announced, that there will be some changes regarding post-study work rights since the beginning of the next year. According to the UK government, current international students have rights to work only for 4 months after graduation within last years. 

 Since 2021, all international students, who graduate from recognized UK universities will be eligible to stay in the country for 2 years. The main reason of increasing work permit duration for international students, is, that, those students are eager to study in the UK institutions, and they do cultural and economic important contribution in both the UK and the universities, thus the presence of international students will be a huge benefit. In addition, at the end of their allowed time of working in the UK, the Department of Education states, that graduate international students will be able to switch on to the skilled work route if they find a job which meets the skill requirements.
