About this course
This course was last updated in December 2020.
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.
