The Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur Visa is for international London Met students who have completed their degree course and wish to remain in the UK to develop a business.

London Met Student Enterprise endorses and supports up to 20 graduates through the Tier 1 Visa scheme each year. In order to be considered, you must have a viable, UK-based business idea and a plan to make it happen.

Who is eligible?

Any international graduate who has been awarded a Bachelor, Masters or PhD degree from London Met.

How long can you stay?

Visas are valid for 12 months, with the possibility of renewal for a further 12 months subject to satisfactory progress. You can apply for your dependants to live in the UK while you hold this visa.

Selection criteria and panel

Endorsement by the London Met Student Enterprise team is subject to an application form, and then if successful, presentation before a selection panel.
