In order to sponsor an international student to the UK, your educational institution must possess a sponsorship licence which is issued by the Home Office.


Once your company has been vetted through an application process and approved as a licensed sponsor you can then issue a Certificate of Acceptance to Study (CAS) to the migrant student, subject to meeting all the relevant criteria.


The rules and procedures in relation obtaining a sponsorship licence can be complex and are constantly changing.


The Home Office’s criterion for issuing a licence is very subjective and they will assess whether your educational institution has genuine and suitable courses available for international students.


The Home Office will also need to be satisfied on the following:

  • that you genuinely offer suitable courses for international students;
  • that you have effective enrolment and attendance systems in place to meet your sponsorship duties;
  • you or your educational institution has no previous history of immigration non-compliance or any relevant criminal convictions.

We can assist your school, college or university through each stage of the application process, offering our guidance and extensive expertise on the requirements to ensure that the application process runs smoothly.


If you or your business has had a licence application refused or rejected we can also assist you in appealing against this decision by way of judicial review.


If your UK Tier 4 Licence has been suspended or revoked with no right to appeal, we can assist by way of Judicial Review. At Duncan Lewis Solicitors, we are experts at challenging the Home Office through Judicial Review. Our team of UK immigration solicitors are highly experienced with making Judicial Review claims against the UK Home Office.
