The University is an endorsing institution under the Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur Scheme (T1 GES). We have been awarded 10 endorsements for 2015 / 2016.
The Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur Scheme is for any graduate of a UK institution who has a credible plan to set up a business in the UK. You will be given a visa for a period of 1 year, with a further extension of 1 year available if your business is doing well. Following completion of the 2 year period, you may switch to a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa, provided you have the necessary funds in place and meet all eligibility criteria.
The T1 GES scheme is on behalf of the University by the Enterprise Development Hub. They will guide you through the application process and perform an assessment of your business plan. Please make contact with them for initial enquiries.
The scheme is open to graduates from any UK institution, but limited numbers mean that our own students will be given priority over non-Middlesex graduates.
