Post-study work proposal for international graduates

Universities UK proposal for an improved post-study work system for international graduates.

Our proposal ensures that the UK’s post-study work offer:

              • is comparable to international competitors
              • supports the government’s £30 billion education export target
              • enables universities to contribute to the UK’s Industrial Strategy
              • supports regional economic development through the retention of talented graduates in all regions of the UK
              • addresses gender inequalities in the current Tier 2 arrangements
              • contributes to increased productivity by addressing current and future skills gaps
