Dear Sir or Madam,

Please could you provide me with the information held on Tier 4 visa refusal rates for students/applicants seeking to enter the University in the three most recent academic years available. If available, I would additionally like information broken down by level of study (i.e. UG/PGT/PGR).

Kind regards,

Adam Marchant

Dear Mr Marchant

 

Thank you for your email requesting data relating to Tier 4 rates at The
University of Manchester and pleas find our response below:

 

The refusal rate represents the percentage of issued Certificate of
Acceptance for Study (CAS) that resulted in a Tier 4 visa refusal.
The overall Tier 4 refusal rates for CAS issued by the University of
Manchester for the past three academic years are as follows: 

 

2014/15 Refusal rate  1.44%

2015/16 Refusal rate  1.39%
2016/17 Refusal rate  0.63%

As the University of Manchester has further entry points in the 2017/18
academic year, the overall refusal rate data for this academic year will
not be available until September 2018.  

 

In line with your rights under section 1(1)(a) of the Act to be informed
whether information is held, we
confirm that the University does not hold information on Tier 4 visa
refusal rates by level of study.  We receive notification of the
institution's annual refusal rate from the Home Office, which
does not provide a breakdown of the data by level of study.

 

With best regards
