The Government held a public consultation on the student immigration system from December 2010 to January 2011. Over 30,851 responses were received through an online survey and over 300 were received by email or post during the consultation period. In March 2011 the Government published the questionnaire results, which summarised the representations received, alongside a Statement of Intent setting out proposals for reforms to Tier 4. There has been additional ongoing correspondence received from colleges in relation to these changes.
The Government responded to the concerns raised by the sector and made a number of changes to the proposals prior to changing the immigration rules.
