Podcast: the new student visa rules

“Don’t panic!” is Tom Brett Young’s message to his education sector clients. Revised student visa rules kick in next month, replacing the Tier 4 routes beloved of known to immigration lawyers since 2009. Thankfully, the VWV partner reckons it’s more evolution than revolution, with the system of student sponsorship remaining broadly familiar. Although with students from EU countries now needing visas, schools and unis have quite enough upheaval to contend with as it is.

In this podcast, Tom and I talk through the new student migration rules that kick in from 5 October: where to find them, what they change and what they don’t. Some — but not all — of the details we touch on are covered in Nath’s recent article on the subject. To stay abreast of developments in business and student migration as the government continues to roll out its “new Points-Based Immigration System”, sign up for Free Movement email alerts and select the “business” option.
