Aberystwyth University is a registered ‘sponsor’ under the Tier 4 Point-Based Immigration system (PBS). This gives us the ability to recruit and sponsor International students.

The Home Office, under the PBS places responsibilities on students and their University to ensure Immigration rules are followed.

As a licenced sponsor, the University has developed policies and procedures to ensure that we comply with these responsibilities. These policies and procedures are also in place to help you protect your immigration status.

To help avoid potential difficulties we have provided guidance on these responsibilities on this website and also in the resources section of this page.

If in doubt, please do not hesitate to contact usYour Visa Support and Compliance Team.
