    How does that work?
    Let's say you tick all the boxes, Oxbridge grad,1st and so on.
    Do they recruit you?
    Is there a difference in pay?
    Are there any special benefits?(housing allowance etc)

    Just out of curiosity really.

    Similarly, what about another field such as medicine or law for example.

    I understand that you'll be studying with a student visa and you most probably will have to go back to your country of origin and then apply to work but anyone knows any info about this?

    EU students (non-Brits) get to stick around for as long as they like.

    For other internationals:
    "To qualify for permission to stay and work under Tier 2, you will need a graduate-level job offer and a minimum salary of £20K. For graduates, switching into Tier 2 from Tier 4, you must apply before your Tier 4 visa expires. "

    Right that's all dandy but do the firms actually recruit you if you're not a UK/EU national?
    What about the difference of pay,ease of rise in the corporate ladder etc.

    1. Apply like everyone else.
    2. Yes.
    3. No.
    4. No.

    You apply whilst at university like everyone else, negating the need for post-study visa (which is being phased out soon).

    Yes, but what I think he is asking is if there is a big preference to UK (or perhaps EU) students versus internationals without EU passports. Because unless you are a one in a million/genius candidate, wouldn't top firms rather just choose a home graduate, versus an international graduate who they have to put through all the visa hoops just to get them employed?

    It seems like if you are just an average international candidate then firms would probably much rather just choose a similarly educated UK student instead.

    Not really. The MD makes the hiring decision and HR (who also outsource much of the work) does the visa processing, so they don't really care.

    That being said there is of course a cultural disadvantage if you're international, but I presume you have languages/experience to tip the scales.

    Why would it be a cultural disadvantage?

    I would say that more non brits than brits make it to front office.
