UKVI have made changes to the definition of a professional sportsperson. All international students on Tier 4 visas (and other visa categories) should read the guidance to ensure they only participate in permitted sporting activities.
Telephone frauds and scams
Universities have been made aware that there is a telephone scam in operation which is targeting international students.
If you receive a telephone call from someone who claims they work for the Home Office, it could be a scam.
