Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur visa scheme International

Our students have the opportunity to participate in the Business Planning Competition during and/or after their study which offers invaluable guidance on developing business skills and setting up a business in the UK.

The scheme is open to all our students and graduates across all our faculties. All International participants of the Enterprise Challenge have the opportunity to compete for an endorsement under the Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur visa scheme.

This visa scheme enables successful graduate applicants to remain in the UK for up to 2 years in this visa category, and developing their business ideas under the supervision of the University of Greenwich academics.

University of Greenwich is being awarded the maximum of 20 endorsements each year and since the beginning of the opening of the scheme we have endorsed dozens of University of Greenwich graduates, many of whom, are now running successful businesses.
