Detailed information about our High Potential service

The visa route is proposed to open the UK borders for top talent, making the UK a place for highly talented people to live and work. High Potential Individual visas will extend the opportunity for overseas citizens to arrive in the UK without a job offer if they show high potential. This new visa category will be provided as an unsponsored route under the point-based system.

The High Potential visa is open to those who have ‘graduated from a top global university’ although the criteria for this has still to be properly defined. In the interest of attracting diverse global talent there are hopes that this will not be limited to list of top academic institutions and that government will follow up on its commitment to consider expanding eligibility criteria to include other characteristics of high potential e.g. high salary, post-graduate qualifications, age, or STEM degree.

Institutions which rank highly on QS World University Rankings, Times Higher Education World University Rankings and Round University Rankings are likely to be accepted as top global Our specialist legal team has a strong understanding of the requirements of different scientific endorsing bodies, and has worked with a wide range of clients to get their applications approved. We will work tirelessly to tailor your application to meet these demands and get your High Potential Visa granted.

We are especially interested in those who are studying at or have graduated from prestigious universities around the world. Please get in touch to find out how we specialise in this type of visa.

The Home Office is notorious for refusing visas for falling short on any aspect of their criteria, or for a perceived lack of clarity. It is, therefore, important to have the best legal advice available.

Get in touch with our team today to find out if you are suitable for the High Potential Visa route, which will enable you to live and work in the UK as a leader in your field.
