Post study work visa after studying abroad

A critical element in shortlisting countries, work authorization enables students to gain international exposure.


While shortlisting countries to study abroad, most students often look at the availability of courses, affordability, university rankings but miss out on one key factor that is a post-study work visa. Going to a foreign country for studies will surely open your world to experience many new things including high-quality education. However, there is always going to be a difference in theory and the practical world. With a post-study work visa, you are allowed to stay back in the country and work without having to rely on finding an employer who can sponsor a work visa. With a work visa or work authorization in place and completion of education, the student is seen as a very good candidate for multiple roles in various companies.
