Factsheet: High Potential
Individual Visa

A High Potential Individual (HPI) visa gives you permission to stay in the UK for at least 2 years. To apply, you must have been awarded a qualification by an eligible university in the last 5 years.

The route is unsponsored, meaning you do not need to have a job offer in order to apply. Once in the UK, you will be able to work, or look for work, at any skill level.

This guide outlines who is eligible for a High Potential Individual visa and how to apply.
