Im not sure if I’m facing a unique problem here or if this is something some of you have experienced as well. I am enrolled on a Masters course at the University of Liverpool and have an offer from KPMG to join one of their graduate programmes in London this September. But they need to apply for a work permit on my behalf atleast 2 months before the joining date and require me to submit an original copy of my degree certificate for this purpose. However, I’ll be getting this only in December although my course gets over in September. I spoke to the HR contact at KPMG, but he didn’t seem sure about what to do and said that he would get back to me after a few days.
I am getting a little worried now. Do any of you have any idea as to what happens in a situation like this? Does the UK Home office actually need an original copy of the degree certificate for the work permit?
Would be a great help if you could respond! Thanks a lot!
