Accreditation of private providers of education to international students
Date: 24 Jul 2007
Reference Number: 070158
The Border and Immigration Agency is introducing a new Points Based System (PBS) for managing entry to the UK. Under the PBS, businesses and institutions which bring migrants to the UK to work, train or study will need to be registered on a new Sponsor Register. For the education sector, this means that only those institutions on the Sponsor Register will be able to bring international students from outside the European Union to the UK.
On behalf of the Border and Immigration Agency, Ofsted will carry out accreditation visits to those private businesses and institutions who wish to be accredited as part of their application to join the Sponsor Register.
