This course will be of particular use to those sitting the OISC Accreditation Assessment at Level 1. The course will provide a systematic overview of the entire UK Immigration Law. It is designed for delegates who are new to the immigration field, or require an update as to changes in the Law in this ever-changing Legal Landscape. The course is presented in a way that assists delegates to understand the material in a logical and contextual way without feeling overwhelmed. While the course will be taught mainly by lecture there will be opportunity for suitable questions and input and delegates will be taken through sample test papers and will have an opportunity to answer part of a past paper.
