Tier 4 compliance - London

Event Overview

At a time of increasing scrutiny in higher education, it is imperative that universities and colleges are kept up to date with the latest changes in International Student Recruitment, in particular changes to the Points Based System (PBS). In recent years we have seen various changes to visa regulations which are impacting Education providers. Those who fail to comply with Home Office regulations risk losing their Tier 4 Sponsor status. The seminar session that will cover the following topics:

  • Compliant International Student Recruitment
  • Education fraud
  • Processes implemented by institutions to meet Tier 4 compliance regulations
  • Effective evaluation of international qualifications

This special, one day seminar has been designed to help international student recruitment and admissions staff to understand more about the new immigration environment and its impact on identifying, evaluating and sponsoring overseas students.

Why Attend?

This is a great opportunity to hear from experts in the international student recruitment field. Gain insights into practical and strategic solutions to maximise international student recruitment and get the latest updates on Tier 4.

This event will help:

Compliance officers, overseas recruitment officers, college administrators, immigration advisers and international admissions staff.
