Global Talent

If you are a promising star in your respective field then you can use this route.

A route for talented and promising individuals in specific sectors looking to work in the UK for up to five years without a sponsor or entry requirements applicable to other categories.

In order to be considered under this route, your application will be reviewed by an organisation that’s related to your qualifying field, called an ‘endorsing body’.

The endorsing bodies are:

  • The Royal Society, for science and medicine
  • The Royal Academy of Engineering, for engineering
  • The British Academy, for humanities
  • Tech Nation, for digital technology
  • Arts Council England, for arts and culture
  • UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), for research applicants

If your qualifying field is fashion, architecture or film and television, Arts Council England will pass on your application for review to:

  • British Fashion Council, for fashion
  • Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), for architecture
  • Producers Alliance for Cinema and Television (PACT), for film and television

Making a successful endorsement application is challenging even for the most talented individuals. There are stringent requirements that must be adhered to, and thorough preparation is key.
