Hi I'm currently on a Tier 4 student visa which expires after I complete my A-level course, and I'm looking to take on a year-long internship during my gap year in the UK but I am unsure as to which visa in particular would allow me to do so as I fall short of some requirements such as a university degree. I'm looking at Tier 5 Temporary Worker visas amongst others, do you have any suggestions as to how I can apply for leave to work over this short period?
