From 1 January 2021, if you want to recruit workers from outside the UK’s resident labour market, you will need to be a Home Office licensed sponsor. This will enable you to recruit workers from anywhere in the world. Further information on becoming a sponsor can be found below.

Under the new skilled worker system, anyone coming to the UK to work will need to demonstrate that:

  • they have a job offer from a Home Office licensed sponsor
  • the job offer is at the required skill level – RQF 3 or above (A Level and equivalent)
  • they speak English to the required standard

In addition to this, the job offer must meet the applicable minimum salary threshold. This is the higher of either:

  • the general salary threshold set by Her Majesty’s Government on advice of the independent Migration Advisory Committee at £25,600, or
  • the specific salary requirement for their occupation, known as the “going rate”

All applicants will be able to trade characteristics, such as their qualifications, against a lower salary to get the required number of points. If the job offer is less than the minimum salary requirement, but no less than £20,480, an applicant may still be eligible if they have:

  • a job offer in a specific shortage occupation
  • a PhD relevant to the job
  • a PhD in a STEM subject relevant to the job

What are my options?

U.K.

The TOEFL test is accepted for admissions by 100% of all U.K. universities, including the prestigious Russell Group universities. If you are a citizen of the European Union, you can study in the U.K. without a student visa. Those arriving from outside the EU, however, will need to apply for student visas from their local British Consulate or Embassy.

You can find more information about living and studying in the U.K. on the International Student U.K. Page.

TOEFL

The TOEFL test is accepted for Tier 4 student visas under certain conditions, even though it is not formally recognized by the U.K. Home Office as a Secure English Language Test (SELT). A process established by the Home Office allows each university to choose how to assess applicants’ English-language abilities. Under this provision, a university may issue a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) for students with scores from English tests that are not on the SELT list, including the TOEFL iBT® test.
