Hello, and thank you for your question. I am your Expert and I will provide the answer you require.

1. The good news is that you can leave your studies and get a new work visa to take up the full time job. This is due to the recent announcement that all graduates of UK universities shall have two years work visa after they graduate from their studies. Here is a link to the announcement that you and all other graduates automatically will qualify for a two year work visa upon graduating from your initial degree. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/uk-announces-2-year-post-study-work-visa-for-international-students

2 . So, you will automatically qualify for a work visa to take up the full time job. However, it may take a while for the rules to be passed into law. So, if you need to apply immediately, you can apply for a Tier 1 Post Study Work Visa. This is the current work visa for which graduates qualify upon graduating. However, the application process has been strict with no automatic right to obtain one. As you will see in this article from the Guardian newspaper from 10th September, 2019, you will now automatically qualify for a two year graduate work visa, from the date the rules changes are implemented. So, you might want to wait until these announced changes become law. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/uk-announces-2-year-post-study-work-visa-for-international-students
