'The government’s recent post-study work visa announcement guarantees those international students graduating from summer 2021 onwards the opportunity to stay and work in the UK for two years post-graduation. In the meantime, we want to remind businesses that they already have access to talented graduates from around the world – they just need to know how best to go about hiring them.'
