Graduate Route Visa
Information on the Graduate Route Visa
The Doctorate Extension Scheme has now ended and has been replaced by the Graduate Route Visa (GRV). PhD researchers can apply for a visa for up to three years once they have successfully completed their studies, i.e. have submitted their final, post-viva thesis on PhD Manager and have received confirmation that it is complete.
You can find more information on this visa in our Visas and Immigration section.
