The UK Government has updated general eligibility guidelines regarding the Graduate Route for international students during Covid-19.
Government sources had previously confirmed that international students studying at UK universities through blended/distance learning during the academic year 2020/2021 will remain eligible for the Graduate Immigration Route if they are back in the UK by April 6th to complete their last semester.
In yet another update it has been confirmed that students joining in January 2021 for studying a one-year Masters degree in the UK remotely will also remain eligible for the Graduate Immigration Route if they complete their final semester in the UK and enter the country before 27th September 2021.
Universities in the UK are well prepared for the ongoing Covid-19 situation making the country a safe place to study. The Government and universities are closely monitoring the health situation and adapting all safety guidelines as well as the latest scientific advice for improved safety of students and staff. With updated outbreak management plans in place, the universities are prepared to deal with the situation.
The UK continues to be a great study abroad destination for Indian students who can benefit from the UK’s Graduate Immigration Route in 2021 and stay back post study for work with the 2-year PSW visa.

I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
