We cover everything you need to know to get started in immigration law and get accredited with the OISC: 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.

Here’s some of our own feedback so far:

There are good visual summaries, examples and links to see where to find the information given.
It was an interesting course and the test yourself questions made me engage with and think about the information presented rather than simply reading it.  The course provides a good overall introduction to this area of law and the explanations were good.  The use of models, case examples and diagrams was excellent.
All of the course seemed comprehensive and presented things in a straightforward way. Links to additional reading, case law and guidance was also helpful. Some of the graphics were really helpful too e.g. good character.
I really liked the multiple choice questions as I could work on my weak areas and this also gave me a boost as It made me confident as to the amount of information I already know.
I like the overall structure and the use of graphics to simplify difficult concepts. It is very helpful also to have links to official documents and practical examples.
Good overviews, clear writing style, good links to HO/gov website, humour, the diagrams were great and clear (e.g. refugee convention outline).
