Read this article carefully if your Tier 4 college revoked or suspended recently. This guide will help you to understand how you should take action when your Tier 4 institutes licence revoked or suspended by UKBA.
12 December 2011
UKCISA has received written confirmation from the UK Border Agency (UKBA) about two issues affecting students affected by college closures.
Curtailment of immigration permission
UKBA has confirmed that if your college closure leads to your immigration permission being curtailed (shortened) they will not use the date that your institution’s licence is revoked as the start point for your curtailment period.
If your leave is to be curtailed, it will be shortened to 60 days from the date the UKBA make the decision to curtail it (i.e. we understand this to mean, as we had previously thought, the day they notify you in writing), which will be later than the date that your institution’s licence is revoked.
Reduced maintenance provision arrangements
UKBA has also confirmed that if your college closes before you have finished your course of study with them, and you wish to apply for further leave to remain to study with another institution, then you will be able to show a reduced maintenance level (“established presence” in the UK) in your immigration application. However, you must have completed at least six months of your course at the closed institution.
You will be able to do this, even if the Immigration Rules and Policy Guidance appear not to allow you to (because you will have neither finished a single course nor be applying for continued study on a course).You will still have to meet all other related requirements, in Rules and guidance, for your maintenance provision.Read the letter from the Home Office explaining the position (dated 6 December 2011)We still recommend that you show the full maintenance provision, if you can. However, if you need to rely on having an “established presence”, we recommend that you print out a copy of this letter and include it with your Tier 4 application.
