Is it hard to get Tier 2 Sponsorhip in London in 2014? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey guys, how is the current situation in London now. Is it hard to secure Tier 2 Sponsorship if you are an internaitonal student? Could some people share personal experiences?

    I am wondering if the job market situation has improved.

    It depends on your work experience and subject. An Arts student might find next to impossible to get a Tier 2 while an engineer might find it far more easy.

    It will depend on the job your applying to meeting the points based system and whether your prospective employer also has a certificate of sponsorship.

    If these criteria are met, then it is fairly straight forward process to obtain a visa, and I think since the new visa system has been put in place the national monthly quota for successful applications has never been met.
