Tier 5 GAE Internship Scheme for International Students

The Tier 5 Government Authorised Exchange (GAE) programme is for people coming to the United Kingdom through approved schemes that aim to share knowledge, experience and best practice through work placements, whilst experiencing the wider social and cultural setting of the UK. This route could be a good alternative for those International Students who struggle to obtain a Tier 2 work visa and yet it is a least known route among the Point Based System routes.

The Programme would allow you to spend up to two years in the UK gaining valuable professional and life experience. Tier 5 GAE allows UK employers to hire the brightest candidates from overseas, helping them start their careers in highly respected companies and utilise that expertise once they go back to their home country. This route requires to have an overarching sponsor as opposed to employer being a sponsor under the Tier 2 Scheme. The list of overarching sponsors can be found here.

The requirements vary with schemes by different overarching sponsors. In order to apply from the UK, you must have lawfully obtained a UK Bachelor's or Master's degree during your last grant of leave, and need a Tier 5 GAE sponsorship to obtain a professional qualification/registration in same field as your degree, or to do an internship of less than 12 months that is directly related to your qualification, and you are not filling a permanent vacancy. More details of this can be found here. The employers would need to apply normally for a registration to join the scheme. At City Legal we can assist the employers with the GAE registration process and assist you with your Tier 5 GAE visa application.
