    This bespoke visa option targets recent graduates, aiming to bolster the UK’s business sector with new skilled workers. It’s an advantageous route for talented students, allowing them to initiate their careers in the UK promptly after completing their studies at elite global institutions.

     Eligibility Criteria for the HPI Visa
    • Age: Applicants must be at least 18 years old.
    • Education: Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Post-Doctorate degrees obtained within the last five years from a qualifying university.
