Students

The UK welcomes students from around the globe to join our world leading education establishments.

The UK’s education institutions are a major national asset and produce significant export revenues. On the face of it, UK Government policy is to encourage foreign national students to come to the UK benefit from the myriad opportunities afforded by the sector.

Conversely however, the UK has a complex legal regime concerning the sponsorship of foreign national students and these students remain part of the net migration figures that the Government wishes to reduce.

We help foreign students as well as their host institutions navigate the complexities of sponsorship and compliance.

We provide advice, assistance and guidance on all aspect of the Tier 4 Immigration Rules and policy guidance.
