I dropped out of uni, and went on to get into banking/finance. It mattered less in those days. These day though there is more of presumption that every half-way non-stupid person is a graduate or at least that's how it feels to me (going to uni, is now presumed of the young in the UK. When I was young, it was a thing only the brightest, and most academic youths did).Dworza wrote:I've got an excelent reference from a senior managing consultants from IBM that was supervising the largest IT contract in the Czech Republic...

You didn't have to be a graduate to get a P1 work visa here. I believe that's still the case. That creates a kind of irony in some ways; you need to be grad for most 'middle' work visa categories, but not the highest one.
You'll find a lot of box-ticking is done here by the authorities. Your reference sounds very nice, but perhaps it doesn't literally tick a box.
