Why you should attend?

International students are an important part of any boarding school community. The total number of international students in the UK makes up approximately one third of boarders in our schools.

The legislative and administrative requirements for those with Tier 4 visas are complicated and a critical area for schools.

This workshop will provide an update on recent UKVI changes as well as an insight into the compliance issues which schools need to be aware of.
