Recently UK has stopped giving work permit visa! So if i am planning to go to UK after my graduation(Probably after 2-3 years), what are the other ways a student can obtain work permit visa?? I want to go to UK for Post Graduate, but as they have stopped giving work permits, i am planning to go either in Australia or New Zealand.

Hi, if you are going for P.G to U,K ,you could get a work permit if you have an offer of emplyment with a minimum of 21,000 GBP per month. So you could still get a work permit if you meet the minimum salary requirnments.

Hi Apart from UK, You can opt to do a 2 year Masters course in Australia from one of the good Universities there to qualify to apply for PR . Else you can also do a program which is Level 7 Diploma or a Masters course in New Zealand from a NZQA accredited college or University to get a 1 year Work Visa in New Zealand. Work Permits are still given for qualified students who get good employment in UK as well ( UKBA has mentioned minimum salary slabs to qualify) .
