07/12/2015INTERIM POLICY regarding DISCRETIONARY LEAVE

Message from Charmaine Valente, IAG Partner Account Manager, Student Loans Company

Dear Colleague,

I have in my recent presentations or meeting updates mentioned an INTERIM POLICY regarding DISCRETIONARY LEAVE .

The consultation from BIS is now open and it's a fairly tight turnaround (2nd-30th December). The title is Student support for non-UK nationals who have lived in the UK for a long time.

BIS has opened a consultation on Student support for non-UK nationals who have lived in the UK for a long time. It follows the recent Supreme Court judgment requiring the government to consider adopting more tailored eligibility criteria for those without settled status. This new criteria will avoid breaching the rights of similar applicants.

Kind regards,
