UK Visas or VFS Global has posted the following notice for Tier 4 students: 

Student tier 4 applicants – Sponsor Register. Student tier 4 visa applicants should ensure their chosen institution is on the tier 4 Sponsor Register when they submit their visa application. Applications made to attend institutions that have been suspended from the register will not be considered whilst the institution is under review. If you have a visa letter that you got before your approved education provider’s licence was suspended, and you have already been granted permission to enter the United Kingdom, but you have not yet travelled, you are advised not to travel until your educational institution’s status has been resolved.

You are advised to check the sponsor’s register before you travel in case your sponsor’s status has changed. Please see the Sponsor Register on the UK Border Agency website.


If you need any immigration advice or help with Studying in the UK, Settlement, Citizenship, Sponsorship, extending Work Permits, Visa or an appeal against a refusal please email: or visit

    Dear 3rd world immigrants please stop flooding my country. London no longer looks like England, feels or smells like England. I went on a course at CONWL and was the only white English person in a class of 30. I hope CONWL gets closed down. FE colleges are one of the biggest sources of illegal immigration to the UK. thankyou.. I wish you all the best in your countries, please do NOT come here.

    I had applied for tier4 visa but it is refused under para 320(7A). i had attached my employers letter that was issued some internal department not the authorised joning date on letter was mistakenly typed as 1 july 2010 whereas it was 1 july 2006.and my resignation date was 20 july 2010 which is correct.
    when Uk home office contacted my employer the authorised department said that this letter hasnot been issue by them but they provide my complete information to uk homeoffice including my duration and salary.
    i had mention my same employment duration also on my application form which was confirmed by my employer to UK home Office.Only the typing mistake was on the employment letter that i had submitted with the visa application which is 2010 instead of 2006.

    Rest i get my 40 claimed points.Guide me what should i do now??
    Should i ask for admisitrative review and attach all my joining and regination letter or should i take new letter from my employers to satisfy the ECO??

    Sir, UK High commission refused tier 4 student visa. i have applied it in March 2010 and i got it 1 April 2010. I awarded 30 points but 10 points for maintenance i did not awarde why? High commission gives me reason that In CAS it is indicate that £1500 of £6500 have been paid and £5000 is pending tution fees.

    But LSBF issue me CAS on 1 march 2010 and i paid £1500 in December 2009, and £5000 after issue a CAS on 4 March 2010, because LSBF metioned on CAS letter rest of the fees paid with in 30 days before start your course(MBA),

    LSBF sent me original tution fees receipts on of for £1500 and £5000. According to me i have paid my full tution fees to college. and i have £11000 for living expenses in my Accout.

    please Note it

    when i submit my application in VFS. I have given both original tution fees receipts with my application. I had seen they attached a CAS letter and my original tution fees receipts (£1500 and £5000) with passport. Even in my bank statement it mentioned that on 4 march 2010 GBP 5000 is transfer.

    I dont understand what should i have to do now.

    1. According to me i have paid full fees £6500
    2. I have proof for that which i showed to High commission
    3. I have £11000 in my account for living expenses

    I dont understand why they have not seen my original receipts. even it is mentioned on UKBA web site if candidate paid the tution fees after issue a CAS they have to show original receipts.

    plz help me and tell me what should i do i dont want to spoil my career.

    Plz reply me as soon as possible
