Student Visa Compliance

On 5 October 2020, the UK government made changes to the immigration route for students.  The 'Tier 4' route has now become the 'Student' route. If you hold a Tier 4 visa, the rules relating to Student Visa apply.

Aberystwyth University is a registered ‘sponsor’ under the Point-Based Immigration system (PBS). This gives us the ability to recruit and sponsor students who are nationals of countries outside of the UK/Republic of Ireland. The Home Office places responsibilities on students and universities to ensure immigration laws are followed.

As a sponsor, Aberystwyth University must fulfil all obligations reuired by the UKVI in order to sponsor you as a student. It is your responsibility, as sponsored students, to comply with the conditions of your visa, please refer to the guidance on Student Visa Responsibilities
