Advising on Tier 4 applications - I
This course is for immigration advisers (not compliance staff) who support students who need to make a Tier 4 application sponsored by your institution. The course covers helping students to make a successful Tier 4 visa application in their home country or a Tier 4 extension in the UK and the evidence needed to support an application.
Having attended this course, you will:
- be aware of the OISC regulations and the implications for competence and boundaries for your immigration advice work
- be able to help students make Tier 4 entry clearance and leave to remain applications
- understand the evidential requirements
- understand how some wider immigration factors may affect Tier 4 applications
This course is suitable for:
international student advisers who give students one-to-one immigration advice on completing and submitting Tier 4 applications. It is of particular relevance to new advisers.
However, before attending this course, delegates will be expected to have attended the ‘Tier 4 basics’ course (see page 5) or already understand the principles of Tier 4 of the Points Based System. Please check the objectives of this course and feel free to contact the Training Administrator to discuss. If your role in a student’s application is more administrative (eg issuing a CAS, monitoring the outcome of applications, ensuring institutional Home Office compliance) rather than advising on making Tier 4 applications then we do not advise attending this course. You may wish to attend the UKCISA training course ‘Tier 4 and Sponsor Compliance’ instead.
