The Home Office recently announced significant changes to the criteria for determining Highly Trusted Sponsor status and, in particular, as from 1 August 2014 a new 10% refusal rate has been applied. Failure to meet the new strict requirements can lead to a sponsor’s licence being revoked.
Carter Thomas Solicitors will be joining INTO University Partnerships and Fragomen LLP to present a detailed half-day seminar for Study UK on 9 September 2014.
During the course of the seminar, institutions will gain:
- valuable insight into the new policy;
- practical support;
- an understanding of the relevant legal cases dealing with HTS status to date; and
- advice on how to minimise visa refusal rates in order to protect HTS status.
