By Francis Subscribe to RSS | December 31st 2011 | Views:

Post study work visa UK is for international students with higher education degrees to get legal rights to work in the UK. It is for recent graduate from UK universities. It is initially granted for 2 years and do not need a sponsorship. It is expected that you will switch to a visa sponsored by your employer, as soon as you have found employment. You can apply for the post study work visa in the UK if you are currently on a student visa. If you have any other type of visa, you must apply for PSW from your home country. This visa is only granted once so it is good to apply for it when you know you have completed your studies. This visa does not lead to settlement and does not count to any type of visa.

To be eligible for the post study work visa UK you must have the following:

• A bachelor, master or PhD degree to gain 20 points

• You studied for your degree at a university which has a sponsor license for 20 points

• You have a valid visa for the duration of your degree course for 20 points

• You are making the application within 1 year of getting your degree or as soon as your award is confirmed for 15 points.

• You get 10 points for English language

• 10 points for meeting the financial requirements

On July 2011 the UK government announced some changes to tier 4 student visas. For adult and child student visa, the UK has a point based system which is designed to be objective and transparent. Tier 4 general is for adult students who want to come to the UK for their post 16 education. It is for those who want to study a course at national qualification frame work level 3. You cannot apply for a tier 4 student visa if you have children who are living with you and whom you are financially responsible for.

Tier 4 child is for children coming to the UK to be educated between the ages of 4 to 17 years. Those who are between 4 and 15 years old are educated at an independent fee-paying school. Tier 4 child cannot study at publicly funded schools. If you are 16 or 17 years old and you want to study a course at or above national qualification, you and your sponsor can agree whether you should apply under tier 4 child or tier 4 general. If you want to study at level 2 or below, you must apply as tier 4 (child) students.
