Fresh Talent Scotland

New work permit regulations for Scotland

The Scottish Executive introduced the Fresh Talent Scotland Scheme to help overseas graduates to stay and work in Scotland. Starting the summer of 2005, international students who have graduated with a first degree, Masters, PhD or HND from a Scottish University or College within the past 12 months and who have lived in Scotland while studying, will be eligible to apply for the scheme to stay in Scotland to live and work for up to two years.

Students (such as Junior Year Abroad participants) who have not done a full degree at a Scottish university are not eligible for this program.

The Fresh Talent scheme, formally introduced in a statement in the Scottish Parliament by First Minister Jack McConnell February 25, 2004, is aimed at increasing the inward flow of talent to Scotland and reversing its population decline.
