At the moment, the rule for post-study work visa is that students can stay and work in the country for 4 months, with the exception of 27 universities, that with a pilot scheme get 6 months.

The immigration route will be available to international students who have successfully completed a course at an undergraduate level, or higher level. This includes students who start courses in 2020/21 at undergraduate level or above. Eligible students can work or look for work, at any skill level for 2 years after they graduate before having to convert to another visa, or having to leave the country.

Back in 2011, Theresa May, as the then Home Secretary abolished the two-year post-study work visa that had attracted scores of students to the institutions and universities in Britain.
