The University is an international employer, and we are committed to promoting diversity and equality of opportunity for all members of staff and students.
The UK immigration system is based on a points-based system and there are some restrictions in relation to who we are able to employ from non-EU countries on various grounds (see the UKVI web site for further details).
Applicants from outside the EU need to apply for eligibility to work in the UK through one of the allowed immigration routes.
The majority of overseas workers coming to the University apply through the Tier 2 (Sponsored Skilled Worker) route, but there may also be other routes available.
The University of Nottingham is licensed to issue Certificates of Sponsorship under Tiers 2, 4 and 5.
