Are you currently studying at Royal Holloway on a Tier 4 International Student visa? Do you have the entrepreneurial spirit and want to stay in the UK to run your own business? Then the start-up visa is just what you’re looking for.
Every year, we are able to endorse a set number of our students to be eligible for the start-up visa of the UK. It is a competitive process so get started early to have the best chance to be prepared as best you can.
For all those who successfully receive a start-up visa, we provide mentors for the duration of the visa as well as ongoing support through workshops.
You can now register your interest here.
Deadline to submit expression of interest 11 October 2021
Deadline for all business plans submission 12 November 2021. Once you have expressed an interest , we will get in touch with you and provide you with the full information and documents for the full submission.
*Students on Tier 4 visa are not allowed to engage in business activity unless they obtain a Start-Up visa.
*Please be aware that students granted leave to remain through the new Graduation Immigration Route (GIR) will not be able to switch to the Startup or Innovator visa at a later date. Please get relevant advice from International Student Services or the gov.uk website.
