International Students and Immigration Law

Staying on top of all the requirements relating to international students is both challenging and essential for many independent colleges, and so Study UK aims to provide access to the best information and training in this area. This includes a series of workshops that we deliver jointly with the Visas and Immigration team at the Home Office, allowing staff to hear updates and discuss key issues of policy and procedure with the very officials tasked with implementing them.

Study UK members also have discounted access (£100 below the standard price) to training from our partners UKCISA (the UK Council for International Student Affairs), giving staff the chance to drill down into the detail of the immigration rules from both a sponsor's and student's perspective.

Events that are delivered by Study UK and designed specifically for independent FE and HE providers are indicated below by the Study UK logo and listed under the menu on the left-hand side of the page.

Are you starting out in international recruitment and delivery and feel that there is such an overwhelming range of options and opportunities to choose between, that it can be hard to know where to start?

Or, do you have a limited experience of enrolling international students and are looking to develop a more strategic approach to directing your finite marketing resources in a way that maximises your impact and return of export revenue?

This one-day conference will present all of the basic knowledge required to develop an international strategy for your institution and the confidence to take the first steps to market.
