LANGUAGE SCHOOLS AND THE POINTS-BASED SYSTEM TIER 4 REVIEW
EDM #397
Tabled 08 December 2009
2009-10 Session
That this House is concerned that the proposals in the Home Office consultation regarding limiting Tier 4 student visas to only higher educational institutions would have serious consequences for genuine language schools; recognises the role English language schools play in local communities and economies; is extremely concerned about abuses of the student visa system for immigration purposes; and calls on the Government to crack down on bogus colleges and students, but opposes unnecessary restrictions on the applications of students to legitimate language schools.
