Update: 12 Nov changes to Immigration Rules

12 November 2015

Earlier today, we told you about confusion regarding today's scheduled changes to the Immigration Rules, guidance, and online application process.

The Tier 4 form for applications made in the UK is back online. It has been updated to reflect today’s new Immigration Rules, in particular the higher maintenance levels. However, the accompanying Tier 4 guidance has not yet been updated.

The Home Office has confirmed to us in writing that 'Tier 4 applications received today [12 November] or tomorrow [13 November] will be considered under the rules in place on 11 November', due to the unavailability of the form. 

UPDATE (13 November): we are urgently seeking clarification from the Home Office as to how applicants can submit an application today under the Immigration Rules in place on 11 November, given that the Tier 4 application form requires that applicants meet the requirements of the current Immigration Rules. If you need to submit an application today under the Immigration Rules in place on 11 November then speak to a student adviser at your institution as soon as possible.
