lunatrix_image1Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) Visas for University of Bath graduates

Many graduates from the University of Bath go on to become world class entrepreneurs and business innovators. Now, with the support of the Home Office, we can help international graduates to build their start-up businesses in Britain.

If you are a University of Bath graduate or will be graduating this year and can show that that you have developed a genuine and credible business idea and entrepreneurial skills, you could qualify for a 12 month Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) Visa and build your business with the support of the University of Bath Innovation Centre which provides:

– Mentoring
– Business Plan & Strategy Development
– Investor Readiness Training
– Investor Introductions
– Business Innovation Networks
– Office Accommodation

Please note that UBIC is a membership organisation and there will be a joining fee.  Currently our joining fee is  £2,100 (+VAT) but is discounted for the first year to £1,440 (+VAT) for graduates and non-revenue generating ventures. Please contact us for confirmation of the fee and for availability of support schemes and bursaries.

Subject to satisfactory progress on the scheme, the visa can be  extended for a further year.

Perhaps you participated in a University of Bath business plan competition? Have been a member of the BANTER student enterprise society? Completed the Bath MBA? Or joined one of the Bath Entrepreneurship Programmes? If you want to turn your business idea into a reality and build your start-up in Britain you should apply here.
