An education provider who wants to teach non-EU international students may be required to become a Tier 4 sponsor. This is the case when they want to take on international students for longer than six months. This Tier 4 sponsor guidance has been put together to help shed some light on the process of becoming a student sponsor.
You will need a Tier 4 Sponsor Licence if you are an education provider looking to take on students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA). If you are only looking to bring in international students from within the EEA you will not need a Sponsor Licence. The same goes for if you want to take in students for six months or less.
Our immigration lawyers offer one-to-one Tier 4 sponsor guidance if this is something you are interested in. This process involves you being assigned a lawyer. Your lawyer will then work with you and your institution to guide you through each stage of your Tier 4 Sponsor Licence application process.
Our services include full document inspection and compilation and a personal written Letter of Representation. This letter is written by your lawyer directly to the Home Office. It pleads your case and sites relevant case-law in support of your application. Get in touch on 0333 363 8577 or using our online contact form to arrange your first meeting.
There is a long list of duties expected of Tier 4 Sponsor Licence holders.
Students who live within the European Economic Area (EEA) do not need a visa to study in the UK.
The EEA includes all the countries in the EU, along with Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. Switzerland is not included in the EU or EEA, but Swiss nationals are given the same rights.
You can find the register of licensed sponsors under Tier for on the GOV.UK site.
This list details every institution which currently holds a Sponsor Licence.
