Changes have been effected on 21 April 2011 implementing more stringent rules in the Tier 4 Student category with an attempt to crack down on bogus colleges and fraudulent applications from foreign students.

Institutions are obligated to register with the UK Border Agency before they are recognised as a sponsor and are able to sponsor international students to come here under the student tier.
