Change of sponsors

Post by Iman84 » Thu May 09, 2024 10:57 pm

I’m studying A level in the UK. Can I transfer to another school continue the same course and sit in the lesson in the new school immediately after I submitted my new visa application?
I don’t want to go back home and apply for a student visa from there so I need to know if I can immediately change school and start the new school as soon as I submitted the new student visa application with the new school as my new sponsor?

Certainly not immediately after submission - until it's approved, not submitted, you would have to stay as you are.

I'm not sure if you can change sponsors in country - someone else would have to give you a hand there.
Not a qualified immigration adviser. Use links and references given to gain confirmation and/or extra information.

When changing sponsor, you will need to apply for a new CAS from your home country.

Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.

Not if they are currently a Child student, although unhelpfully they have not said either way.
I do not give immigration advice. I refer you to Immigration Rules, guidance, other online content and to your sponsor.
