Information & guidance
Last modified: 19 September 2013
This section is primarily intended for staff advising international
students, although some elements will be relevant for non-specialist
If you advise international students, you should ensure you have access to a copy of the UKCISA Manual for detailed guidance on immigration, fee status assessment, Council tax and welfare benefits. Information on our website supplements and updates the Manual, but does not replace it.
If you are not a specialist immigration adviser, please note that all provision of immigration advice is regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) and it is illegal to give immigration advice unless you are authorised to do so. If in doubt, always refer to a specialist colleague within your institution.
