Key events for international students
As you may be aware, the Post-Study Work Visa scheme for international graduates is closing in April 2012. Purple Door Careers and Recruitment has arranged two events for international students interested in working in the UK after they graduate.
These events will be led by Adrian Farley, an OISC Accredited Immigration Adviser.
Please promote these events to your international students.

This presentation will provide key information on the visa options available to international graduates, and in particular the Tier 2 General Visa, which involves individuals gaining sponsorship from an employer.
This is a bookable event. Students and staff can book a place at www.port.ac.uk/careers, choosing the Events option.
Visa options and job search drop-in session
Date: Friday 17 February 2011

This drop-in session will provide students with the opportunity to meet the Immigration Adviser in small groups to discuss their questions and get help from careers advisers with their job search.

Purple Door Careers and Recruitment has also organised a Breakfast Briefing for employers, led by Adrian Farley. This session will update employers of the changes to the immigration rules for international graduates, and provide advice on the steps they would need to take if they wished to employ an international graduate.
