Finance Advice: Post Study
It may seem like a long way off in your first year, but The Scottish Government’s Fresh Talent Initiative is committed to encouraging people to live, learn, work and remain in Scotland, after they graduate. Post Study Work affords international graduates the opportunity to work in Scotland for 2 years after successful completion of their studies in the UK, with the PSW visa giving 2 years’ leave to enter/remain in the UK (Scotland, England, Northern Ireland, Wales) and allowing you to work for any employer in the UK without the need of further sponsorship. In order to qualify for the PSW, you must have graduated from a UK institution with a recognized qualification, meet the English language criteria and show you have funds to support yourself. Applications for the visa are made to the UK Border Agency and the Relocation Advisory Service are available to give advice on relocation matters, like finding a job, accommodation, healthcare.
