If you are a non-EEA international graduate, this scheme gives you the opportunity to set up your own business in the UK after finishing your studies.
This route is for new graduates of The University of Sheffield who wish to develop a credible business idea and entrepreneurial skills in order to establish a business in the UK. If you have a business proposal, you can compete to join the scheme.
If you are successful, and endorsed by the University, you will be able to apply for a Tier 1 (Graduate Entreprenuer) visa for 12 months, during which time you will have the opportunity to develop your new business idea. The visa may be extended for a further 12 months if significant progress is made.
If you are interested in applying or want to find out more call into a drop-in here at USE.
