Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur)

Northumberland Building, Room 116


Are you an international student with a great business idea? Come along to this session to find out how to start up your own business in the UK after your studies.

If you are interested in setting up your own business in the UK after you graduate, come along to speak to Graham Baty, the University’s Enterprise Manager. Graham will tell you about Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur), an immigration category to allow graduates with genuine and credible business ideas and entrepreneurial skills to stay in the UK to develop their business under the supervision of their UK academic institution.

Find out if you could develop your business idea with the support of the University.

This session is aimed at students from outside the EU who will require permission to set up their own business in the UK when they have graduated.
