Welcome to our complete and comprehensive immigration law starter course! Ideal for aspiring OISC Level 1 advisers and other budding immigration lawyers, we cover everything you need to know to get started in immigration law: what is it, how does it work, all about family and business immigration, nationality law, EU law and more.
We use simple, plain English, diagrams, infographics and worked examples throughout the course as well as auto-marking “test yourself” questions at the end of every course unit.
At your own leisure, in your own time, in your own home you can spend as long as you need on this and our many other online courses.
Access to the course is for paying Free Movement Members only, so if you haven’t joined already then sign up on our joining page. Membership starts from just £20 per month plus VAT and can be cancelled at any time.
PLUS we offer three bonus timed mock exams modelled closely on real OISC Level 1 exam papers AND a detailed course on legal ethics for OISC advisers, signposting and referral, exam preparation and everything else you need to know to be an OISC Level 1 adviser.
Our mock exams provide customised feedback: if you are getting answers on certain topics wrong, we’ll point that out and suggest further reading for you.
