Your Visa responsibilities

LJMU has been granted a licence by the UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) to teach international students.  UKVI has granted LJMU a “Highly Trusted Sponsor” Licence.

In order to maintain our right to teach international students, we are required to comply with the regulations set out by UKVI under the terms of our licence.
