For years UK immigration law applicable to overseas students was simple and clear: a student needed a place at school, college or university and sufficient funds for tuition and maintenance, and immigration permission would routinely be issued.
Then the Home Office re-cast the law, basing it on a points-based system (PBS). The idea was that it would make UK immigration law transparent and objective and, as a result, even simpler and clearer. In contrast however, it appears to have muddied the waters and forced education providers to act as agents for the Home Office.
Never before has there been a greater need for prospective students and education providers in the UK to understand and comply with the law and procedure applicable to all levels of study in the UK. Students and education providers must now pick their way with great care through a minefield of detailed and constantly changing regulation. Already student refusals are at an all time high and education providers are realising that if they do not subscribe to the scheme, satisfy all requirements and play the role of quasi Home Office agent, they may even face bankruptcy.
The aim of this practical guide is to fill the vacuum of information and steer both student and education provider through the ever changing legal regulations and requirements.
