International graduate entrepreneurship

International graduates may be eligible for UWE Bristol’s Launch Space, which provides physical incubator space and enterprise support for graduate start-up businesses.

The Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) visa route closed for new endorsements on 5 April 2019 and has been replaced with the new Start-up visa. Anybody who has been accepted into Launchspace with an agreement to endorse under the Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) visa route prior to 5 April 2019 may still apply for a Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) visa until the scheme closes completely on 5 July 2019. Please speak to an Immigration Adviser in the Immigration Advice Service if you have any queries about this.

UWE Bristol has obtained permission from UKVI to endorse applicants under the new Start-up visa route and hope to be able to fully operating this scheme later this year. We will update this website when more information is available. In the meantime please do speak to an Immigration Adviser in the Immigration Advice Service if you have any queries about the Start-up visa route.
