My work supports international students and their families throughout the student journey. My team helps to guide international students through the visa application process before they arrive in the UK and provide support if they decide to stay and work in the UK at the end of their course. The University has a licence to sponsor international students. It is my responsibility to ensure we continue to meet our obligations as a sponsor. I have to be connected to external partners such as UK Visas and Immigration - ensuring any changes to immigration policy are implemented correctly. This connection enables me to inform our international students of changes that may affect their immigration status. I get a lot of satisfaction seeing students who might have struggled with the visa process at the start, finish their course and progress onto new courses or into employment.
