Too old for London
On one of my recent flights of fancy I decided to indulge my lifelong desire of moving to London.
I don’t know why I want to move to London, no real logical reason, I just do.
So I joined a yahoo group appropriately called, Moving to London. Helpful posts from others trying to move made mention of the Highly Skilled Migrant Programme (HSMP) visa, which allows you to move to London to look for worth without obtaining employment sponsorship. This is a much easier route, if you qualify on the 75 point system. Points are awarded based on: age, current salary, educational background, previous UK living experience, etc.
At the end of the very short questionnaire I learned that I only generated 65 points, what killed me? My age. That’s right, over 30 and you get no points at all. If I want to qualify I either need to start earning more money here or go get an MBA from one of the selected schools.
The thought of going back to grad school to get an MBA makes me tired. So it’s back to the drawing board on how I can move to London.
