The UK government is set to introduce the new High Potential Individual visa route which will open at the end of May 2022 to attract recent graduates of top global Universities who wish to work or look for work in the UK.

To qualify, the institution that awarded your degree should be ranked in the top 50 of at least two of the following ranking systems:

·         Times Higher Education World University Rankings:

·         QS World University Rankings:

·         The Academic Ranking of World Universities.

If your application for a High Potential Individual visa is approved, the period of permission you will be granted will depend on the qualification that you relied on to meet the global universities list overseas degree requirement:

·         PhD or other doctoral level qualifications – 3 years

·         Bachelors and masters degree qualifications – 2 years

If your application for a High Potential Individual visa is approved, you will be permitted to work (including self-employment and voluntary work), apart from as a professional sportsperson or sports coach.
