Study in the UK: In a big relief for those Indian students who wish to pursue a career in the UK after completing their study there; now they will be allowed to work in the country for two years and gain experience in the industry. Moreover, they will have an option to switch to the skilled work visa after two years. The UK Government today announced a new two-year post-study work visa, expanding opportunities for talented international students to build successful careers in the UK, said British High Commission in New Delhi.
This new route will be open to all foreign students, including Indian students studying in the UK. In order to avail this option, the candidate must have a valid UK immigration status as a student. He should have also completed a course of study in any subject at undergraduate level or above at a recognised higher education provider in the UK.
The new visa will allow eligible students to work or seek a job in any profession for two years after completing their study. the UK government has closed this option in 2012 but it has now been reopened with some screening to only allow genuine students.
