Hello people, I am an international student and I have recently graduated (well... in 12 days time). I have been offered a job and during the whole interview process I never mentioned that I'm on a student visa; I hinted at the idea that I'm international but they didn't seem to take note of it. I have signed a contract and everything, however; my visa says valid until 30/11/2014.
Does my student visa allow me to work full-time/permanent ? If I raise this with my employer, would this affect my employment ? I have looked up work permits and it seems that I am eligible for this one: https://www.gov.uk/tier-2-general/eligibility, however I am 500 pounds short of the salary requirement. In retrospect I should have looked this up before applying for the job and signing a contract .
Note: My employer has a copy of my passport and even after sending that, they didn't ask for my visa
Have you got yours?
