The request is waiting for clarification. If you are James Field, please sign in to send a follow up message.

Dear Edge Hill University,

Please can you could you state whether, since being granted a Tier
4 sponsor licence, you have been visited by UK Visas & Immigration
(and before that, the UK Border Agency) for the purpose of
assessing your institution's compliance with the sponsor licence.

If the answer is yes, please could you state whether the assessment
included direct investigation of the practical application of
admissions policy (i.e., looking at an actual sample of individual
applications already approved for a Tier 4 visa by your
institution) or whether only a general appraisal of policy
relating to the sponsor licence was carried out, without direct
investigation of its practical application.

Yours faithfully,

James Field

Dear Edge Hill University,

Dear James Field

Freedom of Information Act 2000 – Information Request

Edge Hill University has recently completed and internal review relating to information requests received under the Freedom of Information Act, 2000. After considering the policy and procedures for handling requests for information the conclusion was that whilst the majority of requests were handled efficiently a number of requests made through the website “whatdotheyknow.com” had not been responded to.

Before continuing, I would like to apologise for the delay in the handling of your request. As a response to your request is considerably overdue I am unsure as to whether or not you still require the information. If you still require response documentation please let me know and be assured it will be given processing priority.

Kindest Regards

Lisa Cobain
Policy Officer

Edge Hill University
St Helens Road
Lancashire L39 4QP
