Post study visa for Masters and PhD

In many countries around the world completing a Masters degree can lead to excellent career opportunities in the country that you study in.  Students who complete either a Masters degree or PhD are recognised for their high academic achievement and the skills they can bring.

As an example the UK recently changed their PhD and Masters visa rules allowing international students to stay to find a job for 2 years after graduating. With Masters degrees in the UK being typically one year. Where in most countries they are two years. The UK is now a very popular choice for postgraduate study.
