star this property answer text <p>We continue to explore whether we could make our offer to international students even more attractive, without increasing the risk of immigration abuse, and we are committed to supporting UK universities in attracting international students and talent from around the world. The Tier 4 visa pilot reflects this ambition.</p><p> </p><p>The pilot helps to streamline the visa process for international students looking to study on a Masters’ course, in the UK, of 13 months or less. The pilot means that universities are responsible for eligibility checks, so that students applying for their visa can submit fewer documents alongside their visa applications. All students continue to be subject to Immigration Rules and must still undergo stringent Home Office security and identity checks.</p><p> </p><p>The pilot also helps to support students who wish to switch into a work route and take up a graduate role, by extending the leave period following the end of their study, to up to six months.</p><p> </p><p>The Home Office will be rolling out the Tier 4 visa pilot more widely for international students in the 18/19 intake. A further 23 institutions have been selected, based on having the consistently lowest visa refusal rates for their region or country. The expansion of the pilot will allow us to consider the impact of the pilot on a more diverse group of sponsors.</p><p> </p><p>Once evaluated, we will consider whether to introduce the offer being tested with the pilot into the Immigration Rules and make it policy. The evaluation will report interim findings with a final report in the spring of 2019.</p>
