Start-up visa

The Start-up visa is a visa route for entrepreneurs looking to set up a business in the UK for the first time.

Applications for the Start-up scheme must be endorsed by either an HEI (Higher Education Institution) endorsing body or a Business endorsing body.

If you are a current student or graduate of The University of Manchester, contact the Masood Entrepreneurship Centre for further information and start-up support.

Further information on the Start-up Visa is available on the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) website.
