Cranfield’s Student Immigration and Funding Team can offer support and guidance to international students who require a visa to study in the UK, as well as post-study visa support. Within the Student Immigration and Funding Team we’re available to offer information, advice and guidance to Tier 4 students for post-study visa options, some of which are:

  • Start-up visa and Innovator visa routes for those looking to start a business in the UK after their studies;
  • Tier 2 - General Work visa for skilled jobs for anyone seeking employment with a company;
  • Or, for students finishing a PhD, there’s the Tier 4 – Doctorate Extension Scheme visa which allows students to stay in the UK and search for work.
  • Cranfield careers advice

    The Cranfield Careers Service is available to all current students and lifelong support is also offered to our alumni. Cranfield subscribes to Student Circus to ensure that our students are well prepared to secure a job in the UK. For example, after completing his MSc in Water and Wastewater Engineering in 2019, Kelvin Mutai successfully secured a place as a Graduate Civil Engineer at Mott MacDonald, Cambridgeshire - a global engineering, management and development consultancy. He described the support he received as “supportive, personalised and genuine.”
