The United Kingdom has announced that first degrees, master’s, and doctorate degree holders can now relocate to the country and work in fields such as science, technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship by May 30, 2022.
The visa – high potential individual (HPI) visa, allows applicants to relocate to the UK without a prior job offer or sponsorship.
According to the UK government, in order to qualify for the HPI visa, applicants must have been awarded a degree from a university that is ranked top among the 50 as published in the global universities list by the Home Office.
However, graduates of Nigerian universities, whether public or private, do not qualify to be issued this visa.
The government noted that the list would be compiled annually and would comprise institutions included in the list of the top 50 universities in at least two of the following ranking systems: Times Higher Education World University rankings, Quacquarelli Symonds World University rankings, and the Academic Ranking of the World Universities.
