Loughborough University London Partnerships: Talent+ - 2021
In 2021, the UK Government will introduce the Post Study Work Visa (PSWV), allowing international students who have secured a pass mark to apply for a visa through a fast-track route. Employers will not have to sponsor the graduate to work for them.
To support our students at Loughborough University London, we are seeking 10 employer partners to pilot a new scheme in line with this new visa. Employer partners will work with Loughborough University London to agree a set number of positions that can be advertised to our students.
Working with employers, LU London will deliver skills sessions that can help to prepare students for specific types of roles – with an emphasis on the skills required to secure a job with one of our partners. At the end of their studies, the students can apply for your roles, equipped with the necessary skills to get up and running quickly.
