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 the 1st 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 expert roundtable is one of two events hosted by the APPG for International Students, to inform the inquiry. APPG members will have the opportunity to explore the evaluations of the route which have been done to date, and to ask questions of their expert authors. The experts include the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS), the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA), IDP Education, and others.
