Training providers for international students

The UK Border Agency runs a points based system for managing entry to the UK. Under this system, organisations bringing migrants to the UK to train or study must be accredited by an approved body.

Ofsted will no longer be acting as an accrediting body from 1 July 2009 and will not be accepting any further applications for accreditation visits beyond this point.
