MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships: Navigating the UK Immigration Landscape

Presentation slides from the Webinar

Please note that the webinar was not recorded.

Aim of the Webinar

The webinar provided attendees with a short overview of the UK immigration landscape, with more details on the Global Talent Visa. The presenters gave attendees general information on available visa routes into the UK, based on UK visas and immigration information from the UK government. The event was not designed to give immigration advice to individuals.

Any individual requiring specific immigration advice must use an adviser approved through the Office of Immigration Services (OISC) or consult their internal HR or immigration team.

This event was organised by the UK Research Office (UKRO), in collaboration with the Royal Society and the UKRI Global Mobility Team.

Who is it for?

The webinar is for research support staff, including from HR and immigration teams, within organisations who have recently been awarded a MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship. The event is also useful for individual researchers who have been awarded a MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship.


The webinar was held on Tuesday 14 June from 10:00-11:00am (UK time)
