Overseas students form an essential part of any successful academic institution, so the ability to sponsor migrants through Tier 4 is absolutely crucial. Failing to implement the latest Home Office regulations within your educational institution can have disastrous consequences. Implications include financial and legal repercussions and ultimately the revoking of your Tier 4 Sponsor Status.
News of stricter rules and regulations surrounding non – EU scholars studying in the UK has dominated the media over the past year, namely the tightening of immigration rules and a crackdown on student visa applications. With the major announcement of a sponsor’s refusal rate (CAS) being lowered from 20% to 10%, it is vital that HE institutions have fully up to date policies and processes in place to avoid a serious breach of their sponsor duties.
Now in its 3rd year, this annual conference provides vital legal and policy updates and case studies to Universities and Colleges, ensuring your organisation is not only meeting the latest Home Office/UKVI Tier 4 requirements, but also handling the student experience successfully, protecting the institution from potential threats from fraudulent applicants with fake diplomas and ID documents.
The conference will take place on the 8th October 2015 at the Danubius Regents Park Hotel in London.
