Important reminder: Tier 1 General and Tier 1 Post Study Work to be removed as of 5 April 2011

01 February 2011

We wish to remind migrants who have been awarded a UK degree in the last 12 months  or are about to complete a degree in the UK (Bachelor,  Master or PhD) that as of 5 April 2011 the Tier 1 Post Study Work category of the Points Based System will cease to exist.

Thus, students will not longer be able to work for two years in the UK unless they are sponsored by a UK based company under the Tier 2 General Scheme.

Similarly, the Tier 1 General Scheme will be abolished on 5 April 2011 and we strongly recommend anyone who  may qualify or is eligible to make an application as soon as possible by post or using the same day service.The Tier 1 Scheme ended for entry clearance applications on 23 December 2010.

Please note that current processing times for a Tier 1 General postal application are 2-4 weeks, however delays are to be expected in March 2011.
