Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur Visa Endorsement – apply now!

Blogged by Timothy Collins on 13/03/2018.

If you have an idea for a business, have a venture currently in development, or are piloting a new concept, you may be eligible to apply for our endorsement under the Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) visa scheme, which allows non-EEA nationals who are graduates or post-doctoral researchers to reside in the UK in order to develop their business.

Previously endorsed businesses have included:

  • Social enterprises and not-for-profits
  • Technology start-ups
  • Funding generation and investment organisations
  • Digital education tools
  • Energy research

The University of Oxford can endorse up to thirty applicants per year. Calls for applications are held four times a year: once in each term, and once during the Long Vacation. The next deadline for applications is Monday 19 March at 12 noon. Applications are now open, and you can apply by email to timothy.collins@careers.ox.ac.uk

You can find more information and details of how to apply on our visa page or on CareerConnect. Alternatively you can email timothy.collins@careers.ox.ac.uk.

All applications must be submitted through CareerConnect or emailed to timothy.collins@careers.ox.ac.uk by Monday 19 March at 12 noon.

NB: Interviews will take place on Tuesday 20 March between 09:00 and 13:00. Applicants will be notified of their interview time by email or phone on Monday 19 March between 14:00 and 16:00.
