What do I do if I want to take the same or a different course of study in the UK with a new Tier 4 sponsor?291. The type of permission you need if you want to study with a new Tier 4 sponsor will depend on the institution type and sponsor rating of your Tier 4 sponsor and when you applied for your last grant of leave. There are different rules for students studying with a sponsor with Tier 4 Sponsor status and for students who made their last Tier 4 application on or after 5 October 2009. 292. You can only apply to extend your leave to study at your current sponsor, or Tier 4 Policy Guidance version 11/2015 page 71 of 92 at another sponsor, if your current period of Tier 4 leave is sponsored by: i. an HEI; ii. an overseas HEI; or iii. an embedded college offering pathway courses. If you are currently sponsored by any other type of institution you must apply for a visa from outside of the UK if you wish to undertake further study under Tier 4. If you are applying for further leave to remain in Tier 4, you must be academically progressing. Information on academic progress is set out in paragraphs 51 – 68. You can check the institution type of your sponsor on the Tier 4 Register of Sponsors: Tier 4 Register of Sponsors
re-sitting exams or repeating modules
applying for the first time to a new institution to complete a course you started at an institution that’s lost its Tier 4 sponsorship
applying to complete a PhD or other doctorate that you started studying under your last Tier 4 (General) student visa

studying for a new qualification at a Higher Education Institution (HEI) that’s at the same level of study and related to your previous course, or career aspirations
At 5:18pm (Monday 16 November) the Home Office published new Tier 4 policy guidance [^]. This guidance confirms that the 12 November changes to the Immigration Rules will not be applied to Tier 4 applications made on 12 or 13 November. Instead the new guidance is to be used for all Tier 4 applications made on or after 14 November.
If you made a Tier 4 application between 14 November (when the new Rules came into force) and 5:18pm on 16 November (when the new guidance became available), and you are concerned that your application does not meet the new requirements, for example the higher maintenance levels, then you should speak to a student adviser at your institution immediately.
Ever since the Post Study Work scheme was abolished, the main (but quite restricted) way in which some international students could stay on and work in skilled jobs has been by switching to Tier 2 assisted by the concessions that they were exempt from the Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT) and the cap on Tier 2 visas as they had already lived and studied in the UK. Even with this, however, the number who qualified to do so was typically less than 6000 per year (compared to over 80,000 who qualified for Post Study Work) and numbers of reviews and select committees have recommended that given this reduction some form of Post Study Work schemes should be reconsidered.
On Thursday 28 January the Home Office are introducing a new online application form for Tier 4 applications made in the UK. The new application form will be phased in between 28 January and 9:00am on Monday 1 February 2016. This means that between these dates the link to a Tier 4 application form [^] on the gov.uk website will automatically direct some users to the current form, and others to the new form. Although the Home Office is confident that the transition will proceed as planned and may even be completed earlier than 9:00am on 1 February, we would suggest that if possible you avoid completing a Tier 4 application during this period. However, it is very important that you make your Tier 4 application before your current leave expires.
UK Visas and Immigration is making changes to the Immigration Rules affecting various categories.

The number of international students enrolled in US higher education grew by 10% in 2014/15 – marking the ninth consecutive year of enrolment growth for the US and the biggest year-over-year jump in 35 years. All told, the number of foreign students in US higher education institutions reached 974,926 in 2014/15, for an overall increase of 88,874 students compared to …
The main changes will:
stop new students at publicly funded colleges from working, bringing them in line with those at private colleges (from August)
allow university students to study a new course at the same level but only where there’s a link to their previous course or the university confirms that this supports their career aspirations. There will be credibility interviews and sanctions against universities who abuse this rule (from August)
ban college students from extending their Tier 4 visas in the UK unless they are studying at an ‘embedded college’, one which has a formal, direct link to a university that is recognised by the Home Office. This will require them to leave and apply for a new visa from outside the UK if they wish to study another course (from November)
ban college students from being able to switch visas to Tiers 2 or 5 in the UK, and require them to apply from outside the UK (from November)
reduce the time limit for study at further education level from 3 years to 2 years. This brings the maximum period into line with the length of time British students generally spend in further education (from November)
stop Tier 4 dependants from taking a low or unskilled job, but allow them to take part-time or full-time skilled work (from the autumn)
These changes will help reduce immigration abuse ensuring the UK maintains a competitive offer and attracts the brightest and best international students. The UK continues to welcome genuine students to our world class universities.
