For anyone wanting to become an accredited immigration advisor, this is the first step.

The course will provide an overview of all aspect of UK Immigration Law. It is designed for people who are new to the field – or want the latest updates – and will be particularly useful to those sitting the OISC Accreditation Assessment at Level 1.

Through two interactive sessions, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of immigration law, in line with the OISC Code of Standards and Guidance of Competence at Level 1.

  • The main categories of entry and stay under the immigration rules
  • The Points Based System for working and studying in the UK
  • Visitors

NB: Attending this course will not in itself lead to accreditation or the OISC granting exemption or registration, which is dependent on passing OISC audits and procedures. We will be running an OISC Level 1 exam preparation course the following week - more details can be found here.

Please note that we strongly advise trainees to familiarise themselves with the OISC Code of Standards requirements and Guidance on Competence before attending the OISC courses. These can be found here.
