Hello first post here!

I am hoping to hear some experiences from international students who just graduated this Summer 2020 and were planing on staying in the UK after graduation.

Here are some things I would love to know:

What did you study?

How have you found job hunting?

Are you still wanting to stay?

Are you looking to top up on a Masters to extend your time in the UK?

Here's my answers:

What did you study?

BA Animation in the North East

How have you found job hunting?

Terrible, the arts and entertainment job sector is suffering a ton when it comes to entry level and graduate opportunities. It was promising just last year and now it's become impossible to find a job that would have guaranteed a foot in the door. I only studied two years and this was the second now it is a mad rush to find a way in before the Visa expires.

Are you still wanting to stay?

Kind of yes kind of no, the way the UK has handled things in lockdown has me pretty pessimistic about living here.

Are you looking to top up on a Masters to extend your time in the UK?

Might be a last ditch effort to stay since they extended 2021 UK Visas by two years instead of the previous extension of 4 months.
