Some students can have family members with them in the UK, known as ‘Dependants’, under the Student route. This training session will focus on who meets the definition of being a Dependant and which students can have Dependants join them in the UK.
This course will help you to:
- Identify which people with Student route permission can have family members with them in the UK.
- Find the Immigration Rules that outline the family relationships which make someone eligible for immigration permission as a Student route Dependant, including the requirements that partners and children must meet.
- Advise Student route Dependant applicants on how to apply for permission, including financial requirements, when to apply, and where to apply from.
- Understand what length of permission a Student route Dependant receives and what they can do with that permission, including rights to study.
This training will include presentations, the opportunity for you to ask questions and share your experience. We will only focus on Dependants under the Student route and will not discuss the Graduate route.
Who should attend?
This course is for UKCISA members who have a good understanding of the Student route and currently advise Student route applicants and their family members who wish to come to the UK as Dependants.
