About Start-Up Visa

Start-Up Visa is a 12-week programme for international student graduates at Oxford Brookes. It provides support as you take each step towards gaining an endorsement letter from the University for your business idea.

It is a selective process which, if successful, provides you with the chance to continue to develop your business ideas for a further two years in the UK, post study.
