Immigration

There are immigration rules which affect students on a Tier 4 visa at the end of your studies.

Under the Tier 4 rules you should be granted a visa for the length of your course with an additional ‘wrap-up period’.

This period can be used for applying for a new visa in order to work or undertake further studies.

Working in the UK after your studies

Whether you can work in the UK after your studies, and in what capacity, depends on the visa you apply for.
