To apply for a Graduate route visa, you must have a Student visa or a Tier 4 (General) student visa, and you must be in the UK at the time of application.

You'll have to pay the £700 visa application fee, as well as the £624 healthcare surcharge for each year you stay in the UK.

When applying for a Graduate route visa, you will also need the following documents:

  • Passport 
  • Biometric residence permit (BRP)
  • On your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies, there is a reference number (CAS)

The National Health Service, or NHS, is a United Kingdom-run international student health insurance system. As an international student, you may be eligible for the NHS benefit if you have a tier 4 student visa and are studying in the UK for six months or longer.

If you qualify for NHS foreign student health insurance, you will have the same benefits as UK citizens.
