The UK Border Agency has confirmed that Tier 4 student visa changes announced by Home Secretary Theresa May on 22 March have been incorporated into the Immigration Rules. 

The agency announced that ‘a statement of changes to the Immigration Rules has today been laid before Parliament, setting out how the student visa system will be reformed from next month. The reforms, which affect Tier 4 of the points-based system, were announced last week.’

To accompany the statement of changes in the immigration rules bringing the first set of changes into force from 21 April 2011, the government has published:

  • a statement of policy containing full details of the reforms;
  • revised policy guidance for Tier 4 migrants from 21 April 2011; and
  • revised guidance for Tier 4 sponsors from 21 April 2011.

You can find the statement of changes, the statement of policy and the revised guidance on the UK Border Agency website. Source UK Border Agency.
