Boost for UK science with unlimited visa offer to world's brightest and best
A new, fast-track visa scheme, the Global Talent route, designed to attract the world's top scientists, researchers and mathematicians to the UK will open on 20 February 2020. The Global Talent route replaces the Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) route and means that UK Research and Innovation will endorse applicants from the scientific and research community for the first time. Under the Global Talent route: top scientists and researchers are to be given fast tracked entry to the UK; there will be no cap on who can benefit; and £300 million is to be made available for research into advanced mathematics.Link to Publication
