The UK has announced a new visa scheme aimed at attracting graduates from the world’s top universities to work and live in the UK.

The Home Office says the “high potential individual” visa pathway, which starts today (May 30), will attract the “best and brightest” people who are just starting their careers.

The new visa scheme will be open to graduates of the last five years from 50 top universities outside the UK who will not be restricted by their place of birth and will not need to already have a job in the UK.

Successful applicants will receive a two-year work visa if they have a bachelor’s or master’s degree; if they have a doctorate, they will receive a three-year work visa.
