Many graduates from Warwick go on to become global leaders in creativity, innovation and world-class entrepreneurs. If you are an international student graduating this year and have a brilliant idea for a new business based in the UK, then you may be eligible to enter the University of Warwick Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) Scheme which will give you a chance of remaining in the UK on a Tier 1 visa for a further two years.
The Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) Scheme is run in conjunction with the Home Office and aims to identify, nurture and develop graduate entrepreneurs with genuine, credible and innovative business ideas who wish to stay in the United Kingdom to develop their new venture. The scheme is limited to a maximum of 20 graduates per year.
The University of Warwick is currently supporting 11 international graduates on the Tier 1 scheme with business ideas from a broad range of sectors including food, fashion, technology, education and retail.
If you are interested in the Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) Scheme, more information on the application process can be found on the Student Careers & Skills website
