Advising on Tier 4 applications (part 1)

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

This course is suitable for:

international student advisers who give students one-toone 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 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 (e.g. 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.
