Aston University has Tier 4 Highly Trusted Sponsor Status. This is awarded to Universities who are achieving the highest level of compliance required by the UK Border Agency (UKBA).
The UKBA renewed Aston’s Highly Trusted Sponsor status in April 2012 after a successful Tier 4 audit visit to the University in February 2012.
Having Highly Trusted Status means Aston is able to sponsor students applying to study on General Student Visas under Tier 4 of the Points Based System.
