UK immigration – what you need to know! Claire O’Leary Senior International Student Adviser, International Office
General rules If you are a non-EEA national, you will be subject to immigration control (some exclusions) Your intention should match the purpose for which your visa was issued
Tier 4 visa holders Your Tier 4 visa ties you to study at the institution that issued your CAS You are required to present immigration documents to the University, including any changes/renewals of your immigration permission You must notify UKBA of any changes in your situation including: - your personal details, eg, criminal convictions that you have not previously told UKBA about; - your contact details; - your representative's details; - your family members' details, if they are in the UK as your dependants; - any other information that you think UKBA should know
Tier 4 visa holders Attendance and absence monitoring and reporting Claiming public funds – what are public funds? Bringing dependants
Working in the UK If you have immigration permission as a student including a Tier 4 student: Check that your passport sticker (entry clearance or residence permit) or biometric residence permit (identity card) says one of the statements below: Work (and any changes) must be authorised Able to work as authorised by the Secretary of State Work as in Tier 4 Rules Restricted Work. P/T term time. F/T vacations Restricted work term time Work limited to max 20 hrs per week during term-time Work limited to max 10 hrs per week during term-time.
Working in the UK Your passport sticker or identity card might say something a bit different from these examples, but you can work if it does not say: No work, or Work prohibited. You must not work if your passport sticker or identity card says "No work" or "Work prohibited" because this would be a breach of your immigration conditions and a criminal offence. On a degree level course – can work 20 hours per week term-time and full- time during University vacation periods. Student visitors – cannot work paid or unpaid www.ukcisa.org.uk
Working with student immigration permission when studies have ended If you have immigration permission for up to four months beyond the end of your studies, you can work full-time once you have completed all your studies. If you have immigration permission that is more than four months longer than your course, you should: - make a new immigration application if you are eligible for the category under which you are applying to stay, or, - leave the UK when you reach the four-month point. If at the end of your course you apply to stay in the UK as a Tier 1 (Post- Study Work – scheme ends April 2012) or Tier 2 migrant, you can work full- time until your Tier 1 (Post-Study Work) or Tier 2 application is decided. Be careful about leaving the UK during this period – re-entry to the UK
