Dear Redbridge College,

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 Redbridge College,

The response to my request is now delayed - please do get back to be on the subject of my query as soon as you can. By law, a response to my query was required by 30 October 2014.

Yours faithfully,

Hello

I’ve just received an email about a delayed response regarding a freedom
of information request.  Unfortunately our Recruitment Manager has been
off for some time and she may well have received your original email.  So
that I can help, please could you let me know what you need?

 

Many thanks

 

Ben

Hello James
I have spoken to the Assistant Principal for Student & Accommodation Services. The college had a compliance visit 2 years ago and it covered a direct investigation of the practical application of admissions policy. The officer also looked at actual samples of individual applications already approved and interviewed Tier 4 students.

Regards
Ben
