Removal of Sponsor Licence

After removal of the sponsor licence, colleges or universities are not permitted to sponsor any new overseas students or employees.

However, it does not affect existing sponsored workers and students until a final decision is made in regards to the status of the sponsor licence by the Home Office.

Students or workers who need to apply for an extension of leave or who have not already been given a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) or Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) will be affected.

If the CAS was issued before the licence was removed, the applicant’s visa application will be put on hold until a final decision is made. The same will apply for applicants who applied for an extension.

If the CoS was issued before the licence was removed, the applicant’s visa application will be put on hold until a final decision is made. The same will apply for applicants who applied for an extension.

The college or university cannot issue a new CoS or CAS after the removal of their sponsor licence.
