Data on all international students employed under the former Tier 1 Post Study Work visa are not available.

The Impact Assessment on ‘Reform of the Points Based Student (PBS) Immigration System’ uses survey data to make the assumption that 51 per cent of Tier 1 Post Study Work employees are in skilled employment. The survey data, which is for Tier 1 applicants, has a breakdown of the 2 digit standard occupational code groups.
