About A Practical Guide to Immigration Law Relating to Students

This practical title guides you through the UK immigration law and procedure as it relates to international students and their sponsors in the UK.

It comprehensively explains how and why the student category has become a controversial issue in recent years and consists of detailed 'how to' manuals for those who want to understand their position and promote their right to stay in the country.

A practical 'how-to' manual is included for each of the following groups:

Students, academics and researchers coming to the UK to visit, study or work, or those seeking to extend their leave or switch into other categories
Education providers planning to apply for a sponsor licence
All the aforementioned in respect of the legal challenges they can mount, if unsuccessful
Examining the legal system

A Practical Guide to Immigration Law Relating to Students considers such cases as Pankina and EnglishUK, with their wide-ranging implications from the High Court Judgment where individuals have won cases against the Home Department to stay in the UK. It also examines the legality of the sponsorship and licensing scheme and weighs up the benefit and abuse of the student route.

The comprehensive legislation and analysis covered includes:
Secretary of State for the Home Department v Pankina [2010] EWCA Civ 719 (23 June 2010)
English UK Ltd, R (on the application of) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2010] EWHC 1726 (Admin) (09 July 2010)
Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants, R (on the application of) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2010] EWHC 3524 (Admin) (17 December 2010)
CDS (PBS "available" Article 8) Brazil [2010] UKUT 305 (IAC) (25 August 2010)
FA and AA (PBS effect of Pankina) Nigeria [2010] UKUT 304 (IAC) (25 August 2010)
MM and SA (Pankina: near miss) Pakistan [2010] UKUT 481 (IAC) (26 January 2011)
In examining this legislation, this title combines practical and analytical advice on the subject and draws on the historical perspective of policy formation. It also looks at the development of regulatory systems to strengthen immigration control over students within the broad framework of the Points Based System

Reviews

I've been doing research on the PBIS and immigration cap for almost three years now and I can only say that I wish a book like Elena Tsirlina's had been available at the time. She condenses years of policies, rules and changes in a comprehensible, easy to navigate book, complete with the evolution of the various routes. Thanks to Elena's work one no longer feels as if immigration law was an unnavigable maze. For those wanting to have a thorough grasp on immigration in the UK, whether they battle with it personally, or are conducting research on the subject, this is the equivalent of the bible.” –  Valérie Hartwich, 2012, Valérie Hartwich, 2012

... this (work has been) an ambitious challenge, to which the author has risen with experience, insight and exposition of the law and practice. I hope that this is a work that will prove its worth to users of the system and take its place in the library of immigration literature.” –  The Hon Mr Justice Blake, President Upper Tribunal, Immigration and Asylum Chamber- in the foreword to the book, The Hon Mr Justice Blake, President Upper Tribunal, Immigration and Asylum Chamber- in the foreword to the book

The book is well researched, particularly the parts dealing with policy and development of the student routes, and well structured. Migrants, sponsors, practitioners and others concerned with this area of immigration law will find it a very useful addition.” –  Duran Seddon, Garden Court Chambers, Duran Seddon, Garden Court Chambers
