UK & India Announce New Cultural Exchange Scheme

From February 28, the Young Professionals Scheme is open for young professionals from India and the UK to live, study, travel, and work for up to two years in each other’s country.

  • To be eligible, Indian nationals must be between 18 and 30 years old and hold a degree.
  • Eligible Indian nationals can enter a 48-hour ballot free of charge. A second ballot will be held later in the year.
  • 2,400 randomly selected applicants will be invited to submit their visa applications.

British nationals do not need to apply through a ballot process and may apply at any time.
