Assigning CAS under the new rules for international students

The Immigration Rules changed on 5 October 2020 and Tier 4 visa has been replaced with the Student and Child Student visa. The most important changes include relaxation of the rules on the maximum permitted time to study in the UK and financial requirements for students extending their leave. 

From 1 January 2021, with the end of the post-Brexit transitional period, the Student route will extend to EU nationals who do not hold a settled or pre-settled status. Our senior immigration consultant, Tim Nikolaev, will give an overview of the Student route and the process of assigning a CAS by a registered Student Sponsor.

Overview of the forthcoming changes in UK Immigration

The government has published  further details of the changes we may expect in the immigration system in January 2021. Join us for a preview of what’s to come and discuss how the changes may affect your business.

Topics to include:

  • Hiring people from overseas in post-Brexit Britain – what will change
  • Who will need a sponsorship licence – eligibility and application process
  • Skilled worker route – what will change

Immigration update for international students

Post-study immigration options are blurry and international students may feel as lost as anyone else. Yet, we all have to plan ahead.

We will be running a series of online events to give international students an update on the current immigration policy and any concessions announced by the government in respect of extension of stay, right to work and switching into long-term immigration categories. We will be happy to answer your questions and hear your concerns.
