There are three ways to become a British citizen which are birth, registration and naturalization. Naturalization is the most common way for adults to obtain UK citizenship. If you have indefinite leave to remain and have fulfilled the entire requirement you may apply to naturalize as a British citizen. It is necessary to demonstrate sufficient knowledge of the language and of life in the UK and be of good character. You can acquire UK citizenship by descent if both your parents are British citizens but you were born outside the UK.

Registration is done to those who are 10 years and over, are of good character. It is now possible for people born to certain British mothers between February 7 1961 and 1 January 1983 to register as British citizen. At the time they were born only British fathers could pass on their nationality to children born abroad but this discrimination was removed in 1983.

If you not married to a British citizen you must be 18 years and over, be of good character, be able to communicate in English language, welsh or Scottish Gaelic and intend to live in the uk in order to become a uk citizenship. If you are a commonwealth national and one of your parents was a British citizen of if a commonwealth woman was married to a British citizen on or before 1 January 1983 and has the right of abode may apply to register as a British citizen.

Post study work visa UK replaces the international graduate scheme in the new point based system for immigration. Post study work allows international students to stay and work in the UK for up to 2 years after obtaining a degree from a UK institution. With post study work there are no restrictions on the number of hours that you can work and you can work for any employer. You do not need to have a job in order to apply.

The current rules states that you must apply within 12 months of obtaining your qualification. If you are applying in the UK, you must apply before the end of your current student visa. If you have a student visa you can work full-time but you cannot take a full-time permanent vacancy until you obtain your post study work visa UK. Post study work visa cannot be extended and is granted once, so if you have not switched to another visa at the end of 2 years, you will have to return home.
