The Post Student work Visa category has now closed. For those on a Tier 4 Visa and coming to the end of their studies you will need to consider switching to a Tier 2 Visa. Contact us for further information.
Places are limited due to current high demand. It is advised to request an appointment and book as soon as possible to secure your Tier 1 PSW Visa
The express PSW same day Visa provides international students in the UK an opportunity to seek employment and transfer to another work visa as soon as possible. The Post Study Work Visa is valid for 2 years. You will need your official Degree award from the University to apply for your PSW Visa or a letter from the University to say you have been awarded, but you are only waiting for the award certificate to be presented to you, which is usually during the graduation ceremony.
If you have just completed a Foundation Programme a letter from your employer is required. Please call our office if you need to book a same-day post study work visa appointment to transfer from Foundation Programme to the Tier 1 PSW visa in one day to avoid any issues with your employer.
The PSW Visa is part of the Tier 1 Visa system for high skilled migrants. It was introduced as a way for Tier 4 students in the UK to obtain a work visa and pursue employment after completing their Degree.
