About this course
Welcome to our introductory course on the UK’s Points Based Immigration System and other work/study routes! Here we talk you through the “points-based” visa options for highly skilled migrants, sponsored workers, temporary workers and students, as well as other lesser-known routes such as the UK Ancestry visa and representatives of overseas businesses.
The course is only available to paying members of Free Movement. If you are not already a member, you can join here and access not just this course but all of our courses. Membership starts from £20 per month and you can cancel at any time.
The material was last updated on the date shown on the top right of this page. For developments since then, sign up for Free Movement email alerts and select the “business” option.
