The Global Talent visa route was introduced in February 2020 to replace the Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) visa.
The Global Talent Route (GTR) is for talented and promising individuals in the fields of science, digital technology and arts and culture. Individuals can apply for a visa under the GTR where they work in academia or research and have been successful in obtaining a grant from an awarded organisation on the list of endorsed funders and approved research organisations.
You must also be at least 18 years old.
More information on Global Talent visa can be found on the government website.
