Confusion regarding 12 Nov changes to Immigration Rules

12 November 2015

At the time of writing (10.45am, Thursday 12 November 2015) the Tier 4 Immigration Rules, and relevant supporting guidance, do not appear to have been updated. This is contrary to what was expected, and had previously been scheduled. It is unclear which Immigration Rules would apply to an application made whilst this is the situation.

Additionally, we are aware that the online form for in-country leave to remain applications has been unavailable since being taken offline at 3.00pm yesterday afternoon (Wednesday 11 November).

We are urgently investigating this situation with the Home Office, as we are aware that it puts applicants and student advisers in an ambiguous and worrying position.
