The United Kingdom Now Offers Work Visas To Graduates From World’s Top Universities

The United Kingdom has announced that graduates from the world’s greatest institutions would be eligible for work visas as part of a post-Brexit immigration system aimed at attracting the “best and brightest” workers.

Following its leave from the European Union, Britain eliminated the preference granted to EU citizens and instead implemented a points-based immigration system that ranks applicants according to their qualifications and language abilities in relation to the sort of job provided to them, according to Euronews.

The new scheme was announced on Monday, May 30.

Graduates with a bachelor’s or master’s degree from the top 50 universities abroad can apply for a two-year work visa and will be allowed to bring family members with them.

Those who receive doctorates can apply for a three-year visa.

Successful applicants will then be able to switch to longer-term employment visas, the government said.

Britain’s finance minister, Rishi Sunak, said this would enable Britain to grow as an international hub for innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship.

“We want the businesses of tomorrow to be built here today – which is why I call on students to take advantage of this incredible opportunity to forge their careers here,” Sunak said.

Under the new scheme, applicants must have been awarded degrees no more than five years before the date of application.

Eligible universities must appear in the top 50 rankings of at least two of the following: the Times Higher Education world university rankings, the Academic Ranking of World Universities and the Quacquarelli Symonds world university rankings.
