UK Post Graduation Visa Drop in Numbers

October 2013, 08
EMAIL  Print A+
It has been revealed that just 119 entrepreneur visas were granted to international students who wished to work in the UK following their degree since 2012. The graduate entrepreneur visa was launched in April 2012  following the cancellation of the Tier 1 post-study work visa allowing work for two years after graduation. The loss of this visa had been behind a huge drop in the numbers of international students studying in the UK.
 
UK Post Graduation Visa Drop in Numbers
The new visa could have been offered to 1,000 students, but thus far has only been given to 119 from just 135 applications. This compares to the old visa which was given to more than 47,000 in 2010. 
 
Daniel Stevens from the National Union of Students has said that the scheme appeared to be simply a marketing tools and in no way replaces the previous post study UK visa. He points out that starting a business while studying was near to impossible. Students have also complained the application process was too complicated.
