UK post-study work visa deadline extended for international students

20 June 2021

The UK Home Office has extended the deadline for international students who wish to apply for the new post-study work visa.

Because of ongoing COVID-19 travel restrictions, the new deadline to apply for the Graduate Route is September 27th. Students who began their studies in autumn 2020 now have until September 27th to enter the UK and still qualify for the post-study visa via the Graduate Route.

The Home Office added: "Applicants who began their studies in Autumn 2020 have until 27 September 2021, to enter the UK with permission as a student (updated from the previous date of 21 June, 2021) in order to be eligible to apply to the graduate route. Students who began their studies in January or February 2021 will need to be in the UK by 27 September, 2021".

Begin your UK study journey by arranging a free consultation with SI-UK London today.


 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
