International Students & Graduates

King's Careers & Employability provides international students, researchers and recent graduates with tailored support to help you to consider your next steps.

Our support

As the King’s Careers & Employability team is not qualified to provide extensive guidance on visas or your eligibility to work in the UK, and due to the evolving nature of regulations regarding employment for international students, it's essential to review the specifics of your visa to determine permissible work activities. For the latest, comprehensive details on UK visa and immigration laws, please consult the King’s Visa and Immigration team.
