Services for International Colleges

VisaGuard International provides support to colleges and universities by interviewing overseas students planning to come to the UK and thereby helping education providers meet their responsibilities as licensed sponsors.

Why use our services?

  • The UK Border Agency is tightening up on overseas students coming to schools, colleges and universities in the UK. In recent months some 200 colleges have had their licenses suspended or downgraded.
  • The most common reasons given for suspensions are students’ failure to enrol, attend or complete their courses.
  • The UK Border Agency requires that education providers assess students’ intent and ability to follow the course.
  • UKBA is increasingly asking colleges to provide evidence of interviews to assess intent
  • We can conduct these interviews on your behalf to provide an efficient and effective means of meeting this requirement.
