Home Office Communication re-TIER 4 students

We're waiting for Paul Brown to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Cambridge University,

This is a formal request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Could you please provide the following information:

1. The number of cases where the University of Cambridge has informed the Home Office regarding a student’s (perceived or actual) failure to comply with the requirements of their Tier 4 visa. Please provide this information for every academic year 2014-2020.
2. The number of students who have had their Tier 4 visa status revoked following the University providing this information to the Home Office. Please provide this information for every academic year 2014-2020.
3. What information does the University provide to the Home Office regarding the compliance of students with the requirements of their Tier 4 visas (including attendance monitoring)? What form does this information take?
4. A list of any agreements, arrangements or Memorandums of Understanding between your institution and the Home Office to share information relating to students on Tier 4 visas.

To focus information retrieval, I direct the Freedom of Information Officer who is processing this request to the International Students Office, which oversees institutional compliance with student immigration legislature.

If you are to invoke Section 43 to withhold information in relation to any of these questions please note you must provide details of the exact FOIA exemption, details of who would be prejudiced by this information, and a public interest test justifying a conclusion with arguments for and against the release of the information.

If you are to invoke Section 12 to withhold information in relation to any of these questions please provide details of how locating, retrieving and extracting this information would exceed the appropriate limit of £450 as set out in the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004. Please also be aware of your duty under section 16 (1) of the Act to advise and assist me in narrowing my request to bring it within the appropriate limit.

Thank you very much for your assistance with this request. If you would like any clarification on the information I have asked for, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I look forward to receiving your response in the next 20 working days.

Could you also kindly confirm upon receipt of this email.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Brown
