Home Office workshop: Tier 4 Updates

We are very pleased to announce a series of full-day workshops jointly hosted by Study UK and the Home Office, which have been designed to assist independent colleges in successfully adapting to changes in immigration policy. Covering a broad range of topics, they will provide an integrated view of your current responsibilities as a Tier 4 sponsor and facilitate discussion of recent changes to policy and procedures. A maximum group size of 30 and an interactive workshop format will give you the opportunity to directly ask and get detailed answers to the questions crucial to the running of your institution.

Each workshop will cover a range of compliance issues, including sessions on:

  • Retaining Highly Trusted Sponsor (HTS) status
  • Sponsoring international students, your pre and post-arrival responsibilities
  • Preparing for and dealing with Tier 4 audits and continuing compliance
  • Tier 4 updates: a look at changes in IT, premium accounts and policy/guidance
