The Graduate Visa Route (GVR) is a visa available to international students who have successfully completed a degree at undergraduate level or above at a Higher Education Provider with a track record of compliance and, who have a valid Tier 4 or Student visa at the time of application.
The GVR was launched on 1 July 2021 but Ulster students can only apply after the University confirms successful course completions to the Home Office, which will take place on 9 July.
It is part of the UK Governments points based immigration system and is a flexible 2 year post study work visa which does not require sponsorship from an employer or endorsement from the University.
PhD graduates will be granted a 3 year visa. You will be able to undertake or look for work at any salary or skill level and even be self employed.
