Blogged by Brianna Thompson on 15/10/2019.

All applications must be emailed to brianna.thompson@careers.ox.ac.uk by Wednesday 20 November at 12 noon.

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 Start-up Visa scheme, which allows non-EEA nationals 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. The next deadline for applications is Wednesday 20 November at 12 noon. Applications are now open, and you can apply by email to brianna.thompson@careers.ox.ac.uk

You can find more information and details of how to apply on our visas information page or on CareerConnect. Alternatively, you can sign up to our Start-up Visa mailing list.

Interviews for shortlisted applicants will take place on Thursday 5 December at the Careers Service (date and location are subject to change).  You must be able to attend these interviews in person.
