Disclosures to the Home Office

To assist in preventing immigration fraud, Swansea University is required to report to UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) details of students subject to immigration control who fail to enrol, who discontinue their studies or who fail to maintain contact with the University. We may also be required to provide UKVI with other information about students. From time to time, Swansea University also receives enquires from UK immigration officials regarding the status of applicants or students, e.g. to check whether an offer of a place has been made or whether a student has enrolled.

Swansea University will normally provide information about applicants and students when requested to do so by UK immigration officials. Failure to do so, in some cases, could lead to the University’s removal from the list of institutions approved to sponsor international students under Tier 4 of the Points Based Immigration System. We will maintain records about students (e.g. attendance) which we are required to maintain to meet the UKVI’s requirements.
