Want to become an entrepreneur and want to remain in the UK to develop your business idea? If you are from outside the EEA and Switzerland you will need a visa for which you will need to be endorsed by the University of Reading
The Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) visa allows graduates from outside the EEA and Switzerland to extend their stay in the UK in order to develop their business ideas and establish their businesses in the UK.
To obtain a Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) visa you will need to be endorsed by the University of Reading alongside meeting other requirements as specified by UK Visas & Immigration.
The University is able to offer up to 20 endorsements in the current fiscal year ending 5 April 2015.
To obtain endorsement you will need to make an application to the University which has launched a process for this purpose.
Applications are only open to graduates who have been awarded a degree by the University of Reading in the 12 months immediately prior to the date of endorsement.
The application process and how to apply together with an application form can be found at www.henley.ac.uk/school/page/lob-application-for-endorsement-by-the-university-of-reading-under-tier-1-graduate-entrepreneur-visa/
