UKVI Compliance Team

The UKVI Compliance Team works to maintain Plymouth University's Tier 4 Sponsor status with the UK Home Office whilst supporting international student recruitment. 

Working closely with colleagues across the whole University, we also provide guidance and expertise for both students and staff for all matters concerning the UK Home Office and Tier 4 students, especially: 

  • engagement monitoring
  • UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) Tier 4 sponsor guidance
  • international student enrolments, record keeping and fulfilling the University's sponsorship duties. 

Whilst we are a separate team from International Student Advice, we work very closely with them, supporting their work to provide an excellent student experience for all our international students.

The UK Home Office policies regarding international students are updated regularly. We monitor these changes and update University policies, providing accurate and up to date guidance to colleagues and students.
