We were instructed by the client to act on his behalf in relation to his admission as a student in an LLM [Law Conversion] course of studies and issuance of a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS), as well as submitting a Tier 4 (General) Student application.
The client had received a letter of acceptance by the higher education provider and had proceeded to make the payments towards tuition fees. Being an international student, however, our client asked to be issued a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS), as he would be switching from his current leave to remain as a Tier 2 (General) Migrant to a Tier 4 (General) Student Migrant within the UK.
A month after our client accepted the offer, he was informed that he was not eligible to study the LLM [Law Conversion] course of studies as he was reaching the 5-year cap.
Our expert solicitors submitted thorough representations detailing that the client satisfied the requirements. The case was successfully dealt by Head of Immigration Department Ms. Patricia” We were able to acquire the CAS successfully, and Tier 4 General Student leave to remain for the client. The client was very pleased with the outcome and is now able to continue his studies in the UK.
