Attention students! The UK is offering another benefit to you all. Effective from July 1st, those Indian students who have completed their graduation from the UK are eligible to apply for a post-graduate work permit without having any sponsor. It is known as the new graduate route under which international students can stay in the UK for two years to work. However, students whose visa expires before introducing the new pathway will not be eligible for this provision.

Under this relaxation, the international students do not require to have a job offer to stay in the UK to work. Also, there are no minimum salary requirements or any other criteria to apply for the Graduate route. There is the flexibility to choose and switch among the jobs. The only requisite is to complete the graduation and being compliant with the immigrants’ laws and regulations of the UK Government.

Students are optimistic about this decision. After all the disruptions and uncertainties faced due to the pandemic, the Graduate route comes as a ray of hope for Indian students aspiring for UK education. With classes running online and students stuck up in their respective rooms in isolation, there is a possibility that they will be able to stay in the country and take up employment to give the right start to their professional life.

It is undoubtedly a fact that the UK is an expensive country to pursue education for Indian students. As this Graduate Visa was the buzzing news for international students and getting confirmation now, the students are delighted to stay in the country and earn to repay their debts and be financially independent in a foreign nation.

On the other hand, with this move, the UK Government anticipates an increased flow of Indian students to its land. The British High Commission to India perceives this as a significant step to fostering human relations among the two countries. It determines that the students will be able to apply for this route from within the UK itself. It requires the applicant to submit a new application to the immigration authorities.
