Tier 4 basics - FULLY BOOKED

This course is for immigration advisers and compliance staff working with Tier 4 students. It aims to give a foundation for Tier 4 (General) and for the other immigration courses that we offer. The course doesn’t deal with anything that is specific to Tier 4 (Child) but much of what is covered – for Tier 4 (General) – is of relevance to Tier 4 (Child).

By the end of this course, participants will:

  • be able to locate relevant resources and use them effectively
  • know to what extent your work is regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC)
  • know the elements of Tier 4

This course is suitable for:

anyone who works with international students directly or who is involved in developing and implementing institutional processes which affect international students. Tutors will assume that all participants have worked through the immigration module of Understanding International before attending this course - in particular using the URLs in that module to find where the Immigration Rules, Tier 4 Policy Guidance and Tier 4 sponsor materials are located.

Those who advise international students directly on immigration applications should also plan to attend UKCISA’s ‘Advising on Tier 4 applications I’ course after completing this course. We will not deal with how to make applications or compliance matters on this course.
