Tech Nation Visa for Computer Scientists (and not only)

Margaret Hamilton and Global Talent Visa in Science... or Tech Nation Visa

Tech Nation Visa for Computer Scientists is something between the UK Global Talent Visa in Digital Technologies and Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa in Science (or Engineering). But I understand how difficult is to make the right choice within three of them in your own unique situation.

Moreover, one of my readers asked me about the details, which I promised to explain earlier. Hence, today is the best day to answer the questions like can you get Tech Nation Visa without PhD? Or, instead, can you get Tech Nation Visa with PhD?

If you know Russian and English, then you can fluently read this text. Otherwise, read my brief translation below.

Good afternoon, Andrey,

My name is The Exceptionally Talented Reader. I am from Russia and plan to apply for the Global Talent Visa.

As of now, I am on the final stage of my PhD in the UK. My question is related to your post below:

“At this moment, I will tell you the truth – I planned also to write here a list of documents for Talent Visa in Digital Technologies (Science) as well. In other words, when people have completed a PhD in Computer Science and other related areas and want to stay in the United Kingdom. But since my blog post, today is extremely long, I will have a break and consider science applicants in a separate article. So 15 more documents are on the way to my next post :).  “

However, I didn’t find a recommendation about this either on your website or in your app, which I purchased.

I plan to apply exactly for Global Talent Visa in Digital Technology (previously known as Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa).

Also, I am not eligible for a new track for scientists since yet I do not work at the research project, funded by the authorised UK organisations.

I would like to ask you about the advice for people who have a PhD in Computer Science (actually, this is my case). Please, write in Russian or English – whichever is convenient for you.

Conclusion

I tried to highlight the most controversial aspects of Global Talent Visa for Computer Scientists here. However, if you have any questions about your specific situation – let me know. I will be glad to share my humble opinion with you.

By the way, for the cover of this post, I use a photo of Margaret Hamilton, who was standing next to listings of the software she and her MIT team produced for the Apollo project. It was in 1969. But if she was doing the same now and wanted to get Global Talent Visa, then she will have a choice between Tech Nation Visa or Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa in Science.
