What is the criteria of Tier 1 (Post-Study Work)?

International graduates who have studied in the UK (under Tier 4) can apply for visa from their country of origin or may extend their visa under Tier 4 as Tier 1 (Post-Study Work) migrants. 

Please note that the Post-Study Work subcategory is scheduled to close in April of 2012.

Following is the requirement under this category:

You need to obtain 75 points from Appendix A.
