Post-study visas

Today, Wednesday 11 September, the Prime Minister announced a new immigration route for international students to stay in the UK to find work for up to two years after their studies. This represents a significant increase on the current period which is just four months. 

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said:

It is a testament to our world-leading universities that so many students from abroad want to study here. The important contribution international students make to our country and universities is both cultural and economic. Their presence benefits Britain, which is why we’ve increased the period of time these students can remain in the UK after their studies.

Our universities thrive on being open global institutions. Introducing the graduate route ensures our prestigious higher education sector will continue to attract the best talent from around the world to global Britain.

School visit

Yesterday, the Prime Minister and the Education Secretary Gavin Williamson went to visit Pimlico Academy school in London to mark the launch of the new wave of free schools being launched across the country.
