Cranfield University is implementing a range of activities to enable its graduates to take advantage of Government proposals to allow international students to work in the UK after graduation. 

90% of our international students that completed their programme in 2020/2021 were in professional level employment or further study according to HESA’s latest available Graduate Outcomes data. Cranfield is a Tier 4 sponsor with an excellent track record of compliance. Cranfield Careers and Employability Service are now having extended conversations with their many employer partners to ensure that we are fully ready to help students to take full advantage of the exciting UK post-study work opportunities available.

International students planning to enrol in October 2022 will be able to:

  • Access the full range of employment opportunities for international students that are being identified by Cranfield’s Employer Engagement Team;
