Supporting Taught international students to success: limitations & opportunities in a Tier 4 context
Team Central Short Courses
The Visa and Immigration team manages student advice and UKVI (Home Office) compliance for Tier 4 students on behalf of the University. This will be a workshop session giving staff the opportunity to:
- meet some of the Visa team and learn more about the support available to international students - learn or refresh their knowledge about the Tier 4 student journey - understand our institutional compliance requirements and how their role plays a part in this - discuss some of their limitations of Tier 4 in the context of some common problems taught students encounter during their studies, eg changes of course, resits, issues affecting attendance and engagement.
1) Familiarisation with the Visa and Immigration team and the support we offer. 2) Understanding of University and student responsibilities in a Tier 4 visa context. 3) Sharing of best practice in how we can work together to support these students, and mitigate some common problems and concerns.
