PBS monitoring stakeholder group meeting 16th March 2010
The university has new responsibilities as a Tier 4 sponsor of migrant Students
Sponsors must notify us where a student has missed 10 expected contacts.
For students in schools, Further Education and English language colleges this will normally be where the student has missed 2 weeks of a course.
In the Higher Education sector, where daily registers are not kept we will accept this reporting where the student has missed 10 expected interactions (for example, tutorials, submission of coursework etc).
Some examples of expected interactions would be:
Students are allowed to re-sit examinations or repeat any part of their course up to two times per individual examination or module. If the student’s leave expires before they have finished the re-sit, or repeat they must make an application to extend their leave before their current leave expires.
Where the student has to do a re-sit or repeat a module of study, sponsors must decide, based on their knowledge of the student and their assessment of the student’s ability to pass the course, whether or not it is appropriate to continue sponsoring them.
Sponsors must not continue to sponsor a student if the student has already twice failed a re-sit, or twice repeated a period of study. If a sponsor does continue to sponsor a student beyond these limits, it may have its licence downgraded or withdrawn.
We can sponsor a student while they are repeating as long as we require their continued participation within 60 days of the next academic period (with the exception of university vacations).
When this is not the case we should notify the UKBA and advise the student to leave the UK or, if their CAS is due to expire, we should not assign a CAS for an extension but advise them to leave the UK.
We may at a later date sponsor the student when they apply for a new visa to return to the UK.
* This process is to be agreed with Deans and Faculty Offices
