Route 2 of the Global Talent visa is for applicants who have been awarded an individual fellowship on the list approved by the British Academy, Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society. The listed fellowships are awarded through stringent peer review processes.
If you are a fellowship provider interested in applying for awards to be included on the list, please contact email@example.com for an initial conversation on criteria and assurance requirements.
The list was last updated on 6 October 2021.
To apply for endorsement, you must select the relevant fast-track option on the Stage 1 (endorsement) application form and provide a copy of your fellowship award letter. If you currently hold one of the named fellowships in either the ‘exceptional talent’ or ‘exceptional promise’ category, or have held it within five years directly prior to your date of application, you can be assured of fast-track endorsement.
Please check carefully whether your fellowship appears on the list below. Holders of other fellowships or grants not on the list may still be eligible for endorsement under the other Global Talent visa routes and are encouraged to look at all endorsement options before making an application.
