We also provide home study training courses to international students who are interested in setting up an immigration practice in their home country to provide UK immigration advice and services to visitors and migrants to the UK.
If you are interested in setting up your own immigration practice in your home country to provide U.K. immigration advice and services to individuals and businesses, you do not have to be authorised by the regulatory bodies in the UK. Your representations on behalf of your clients will be accepted by the Home Office in the U.K. and the British High Commission/Embassy in your country.
The only regulatory requirement which you may have to comply with (if any) is that of your own country. In this regard, you are reminded to check with your relevant government body or seek legal advice to ensure that you do not violate any domestic legislation in your own country by setting up an immigration practice.
The training we provide to national and international students is at the same high standard. The only significant difference is that UK students will be subjected to external assessment in order to get authorisation before being allowed to provide immigration advice, whereas international students will not. This will clearly give international students some advantages.
However, in order to advise your clients properly and build a successful immigration practice in providing U.K. immigration advice from overseas, it is necessary for international service providers to have the up-to-date knowledge of the relevant legislation, case-law and Home Office policies. This is where we can provide you with first-class training through our international distance learning courses to help you build a professional career and business.
