Tier 1 Visa                

If you are an international student with a business idea that you would like to launch in the UK, you can apply for a Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) Visa.

The University sponsors 20 international graduates every year who have ‘genuine and credible business ideas and entrepreneurial skills’ to be supported by CU Social Enterprise (CUSE).

CUSE will assess a business plan for successful applications and will support the aspirational entrepreneurs to launch their own business in the UK for a 12-month period.
