28 February 09.15-10.00
If you are interested in establishing your own business in the UK and require a visa to do so, the Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur Visa endorsement programme may be of interest to you.
This information session (with the Student Visa and Immigration Office and Endorsement Panel Chair) is an opportunity to better understand what the endorsement panel at Oxford are looking for and the mechanics of making your application. We strongly advise anyone thinking of making an application for endorsement to attend.
Successful endorsement applicants can apply for a visa for one year to develop their business idea. Visa holders can then apply for one further year to remain in the UK by being re-endorsed. Proof of satisfactory progression within the business is one of the requirements to be considered for a second endorsement. Additional employment is allowed to supplement income whilst the business is in development. The applicant’s dependent partner and children can also apply to remain in the UK.
We are keen to support entrepreneurial activity at all levels and encourage all graduating students from any discipline and with any sort of business idea to apply.
