International Student Compliance

International Student Compliance

If you are an international student studying at Coventry University, you will have met a number of strict requirements set by the UK government in order to study in the UK. Coventry University wants to ensure that you are able to remain in the UK to enjoy your time and successfully complete your studies. For this to happen, both you as a student and the University as your sponsor, are required to comply with strict Home Office rules.

This is managed by the International Student Compliance team, who maintain a strong partnership with Coventry University International students to ensure continued compliance with visa requirements. The International Student Compliance Team are friendly, approachable and assist students in remaining compliant with current UKVI regulations.

The International Student Compliance Team will ensure that students fully engage in their studies, provide advice and guidance on compliance matters and maintain a secure electronic file containing copies of international students current immigration documentation.

Further information

Coventry University is obliged to act honestly and therefore must inform the UKVI of any students who do not comply with the conditions of the visa. We will do all we can to assist you in remaining compliant with your visa regulations but it is essential that you take responsibility for your own studies, personal information and documents, keeping those documents up to date. As a student, you must ensure that you understand and comply with the rules of your leave. 

Students who fail to fully adhere to visa regulations put their visa status at risk and continued failure may result in the University withdrawing sponsorship. Withdrawal of sponsorship will result in curtailment (cancellation) of the visa.
