UK Revised Visa Enrollment Excludes Nigerian Universites

The United Kingdom has announced that graduates from the world's greatest institutions would be eligible for work visas as part of a post-Brexit immigration system aimed at attracting the "best and brightest" employees.

According to Euronews, Britain eliminated the preference granted to EU nationals and instead implemented a points-based immigration system that ranks applicants according to their credentials and language abilities in relation to the sort of job provided to them.

On Monday, May 30th, the revised scheme was announced.   

Graduates with a bachelor's or master's degree from one of the top 50 universities in the globe can apply for a two-year work visa and bring their families.

People with Doctorate beneficiary can apply for a three-year visa.

According to the government, successful applicants would be allowed to move to longer-term employment visas.

Britain's finance minister, Rishi Sunak, said this would enable Britain to grow as an international hub for innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship.

 "We want the businesses of tomorrow to be built here today – which is why I call on students to take advantage of this incredible opportunity to forge their careers here," 

Sunak said. 

Applicants must have acquired their respective degrees no more than five years before applying under the new scheme. 

The UK government's most recent list of eligible universities from 2021 includes more than two dozen American universities, as well as institutions from Canada, Japan, Germany, China, Singapore, France, and Sweden. 

All candidates must pass a security and criminality check, as well as speak, read, listen, and write English at an intermediate level.
