International Graduates Scheme
The International Graduates Scheme has now closed to new applicants.
If you want to come and work in the UK as a graduate, or if you are already here and you want to switch into a work category, you must apply under our points-based system.
If you are already in the UK under the International Graduates Scheme (or the Science and Engineering Graduates Scheme that preceded it), please read the transitional arrangements for migrants on the International Graduates Scheme or the Science and Engineering Graduates Scheme.
