The immigration team at Penningtons would like to remind tier 4 sponsors of the changes to the immigration rules that are coming into force on 4 July 2011.

As reported on our website on 13 June, the changes include restricting work entitlements to migrants studying at higher educational institutions (HEIs) and publicly funded further education colleges only.

If students submit their applications for entry clearance or leave to remain by 3 July 2011, then their application will not be affected by these changes.
