Below are the main immigration categories for international students who want to remain in the UK to work after studies, or who want to return to the UK in future for work. We recommend that you prepare in advance, most working categories require you to show money in your bank account for at least 90 days before you apply. You will also need to factor in the Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) payment. If you are currently financially sponsored, you may require consent from your sponsor.
