UCL Careers


Visas and work permits


Online resources

Through our online careers library, you can search for links to key websites which provide information and advice on the range of visa/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. Search for terms such as 'visas' to link to relevant resources.

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).
