Swansea University

3. Students with a Tier 4 Visa


The University is required to monitor the attendance of all Tier 4 students, in line with UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) regulations as well as the Immigration Rules that underpin immigration into the United Kingdom. In addition to the University Attendance Monitoring Policy for Taught Students, the International Student Compliance Unit will carry out weekly checks of all attendance data for Tier 4 students on taught programmes.  In the case of unsatisfactory attendance, as determined by the University, a Tier 4 student will become subject to the enhanced monitoring for Tier 4 students as detailed in section 4 of the Attendance Monitoring Policy for Tier 4 Sponsored Students.  This will be administered centrally by the International Student Compliance Unit.
