The Graduate Visa was launched in 2021 to offer international students studying at degree level in the UK the opportunity to work here for two years after study. On 1 July 2023 the visa will officially have been available for two years and the first of the students to access the visa will start to take their next steps. To mark this anniversary the APPG for International Students are conducting a short inquiry into the effectiveness of the Graduate Visa route in its first two years.
The student roundtable is one of two events hosted by the APPG for International Students, to inform the inquiry. International students, both with experience and without experience of the Graduate Visa, will have the opportunity to contribute their perspectives and respond to some of the key findings identified in the expert roundtable. Participating students include UKCISA Student Ambassadors and international students sourced by the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS) and the British Universities International Liaison Association (BUILA).
