Coronavirus: Guidance for Tier 4 students
We will be updating this page as and when any further guidance is issued by the government which may be relevant for Tier 4 students.
Government guidance can be found here.
Tier 4 sponsorship
Following guidance from the Home Office, the University will continue your Tier 4 sponsorship during the suspension of face-to-face teaching. However all Tier 4 students should continue to engage with all learning, teaching and assessment online.
Any Tier 4 students who cannot attend their course due to the coronavirus or suspected coronavirus will have their absences classed as authorised. This means your Tier 4 sponsorship will not be negatively affected. Please make sure you e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to inform us.
If you decide to return to your home country, we will continue your Tier 4 sponsorship during your period of absence. It is very important you notify us, both for visa requirements and so that we can support you appropriately to continue your studies. Please e-mail email@example.com with the following information:
- Date of departure
- Travel details i.e. flight confirmation
- Reason for leaving UK
- Planned return date (if possible)
