UCL Careers


Immigration and visas


Our staff and other career professionals from across our parent body, The Careers Group, University of London, have provided reviews and descriptions of websites and online resources. 

They provide information and advice on the range of visa and work permit options currently available for those looking to stay in the UK after graduation plus guides for current international students thinking about working while you study.

Visit the UCL Online Careers Library and use tags such as 'Work permits', 'Visas', 'International students' to link to relevant resources.

UCL International student support

This department at UCL also provides on-line guidance for information about UK immigration and visas. Areas covered include:

  • Tier 4 applications
  • Short-term Student visas
  • Working whilst in the UK (during and after study)
  • Doctorate Extension Scheme

See the International student support website for more details.

International student sponsorship data

We are often asked if we hold data on numbers of international students that secure sponsorship to remain in the UK after leaving university and who sponsors them.

Our data dashboard provides the information we hold on this.
