Tier 4 Sponsors
This is a list of insititutions licensed to sponsor migrants under Tier 4 of the Points-based System.
Highly Trusted Sponsor - (Highly Trusted Sponsor status (HTS) is designed to ensure that all education providers are taking their obligations on immigration compliance seriously. It recognises sponsors who show a good history of compliance with their sponsor duties and whose students comply with the terms of their visa or permission to stay in the UK)Find Institute
B Rating Sponsor - Under the sponsor ratings system in place before 05 September 2011 it was possible for some sponsors to be B rated. The Tier 4 sponsor guidance details the requirements for sponsors who are currently B-rated, sets out what sponsors must now do to keep their sponsor licence and provides information on transitional arrangements.Find Institute
Legacy Sponsors - (Legacy sponsors are Tier 4 sponsors who either: • do not try to meet the requirements for educational oversight by the deadlines set out in the sponsor guidance; or • do try to meet the new requirements for educational oversight by the deadlines set out in the sponsor guidance, but fail; or • meet the mandatory requirements for Highly Trusted Sponsor but score a ‘near miss’ on the core measurable requirements and when they re-apply, score a second near miss. If sponsors become legacy sponsors they will retain their original sponsor rating however they may not sponsor any new students or any existing students for a new course.)Find Institute
