graduate route in uk

Congratulations! You’ve successfully navigated the challenges of your UK degree. Now, what’s next? For many international students, the answer lies in staying and building a career in this vibrant nation. Here at Studies In Overseas (SIO), we understand the desire to extend your UK experience. That’s why we’re here to guide you through the exciting possibilities offered by the Graduate Route.

What is the Graduate Route?

The Graduate Route is a post-study work visa introduced by the UK government. It allows international graduates of bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees, or PhDs from approved UK universities to stay and work in the UK for a specific period after graduation.

This is fantastic news if you’re looking to:

  • Gain valuable work experience in your field.
  • Network with professionals in your chosen industry.
  • Develop your career prospects in the UK.

Benefits of the Graduate Route:

  • Unrestricted work: Unlike some visa types, the Graduate Route allows you to work in any sector, at any skill level. This flexibility is perfect for recent graduates exploring career options.
  • Time to secure a skilled role: The Graduate Route offers a two-year window to find a suitable job that aligns with your qualifications.
  • Pathway to settlement: While not a direct route to permanent residency, gaining work experience under the Graduate Route can strengthen your future immigration applications.
