    Corporate and Education Sector Organisations

    • This membership is for bodies which are neither educational institutions nor students unions, including professional, voluntary and corporate organisations. 
    • Agents based in the UK can also apply under this category. You will need to provide references from two educational institutions which are current UKCISA members and demonstrate that you comply with any relevant legislation, eg the framework set out by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner for those providing immigration advice.
    • Overseas institutions that provide study abroad programmes in the UK may also apply under this category.
    • For organisations seeking an unusually high level of access to UKCISA services, the level of fee will be negotiated on a one-off basis.
