The information we provide is focused on Student visa holders in the UK, and what rights they hold. There are a variety of immigration options available to work in the UK. Where we discuss a particular route, we provide you with helpful guidance and links to the appropriate application forms. As a further resource, the British Council have combined with Future Learn to provide this helpful MOOC on Preparing for Work in the UK, specifically for international graduates. Also, If you are an international PhD student, there is also an immigration toolkit available to read on the jobs.ac.uk website.
For schemes sponsored by an employer or endorsed by your university or another body, the sponsor or endorsing body itself is normally the best source of advice. Some law centres, and other advice centres have immigration specialists who will provide some basic advice free of charge. Some private solicitors also specialise in immigration law, although they will charge you a fee for their advice. We have further information on seeking advice here.
