UCL Careers


Visas and work permits


Online Careers Library

Career Discovery provides information about visas/work permits both for working in the UK or in other countries.

Search for visas to view articles for international students who want to work in the UK either during or after, as well as guides on working in other countries, including visa requirements.

UCL International student support

This department at UCL also provides online 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. (You will require a current UCL user ID to access this data).
