Layla Moran MP (Liberal Democrats) asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what guidance his Department issues to universities in respect of their monitoring the whereabouts of international employees and students on sponsored visas.
Answered on 14 June 2018 by Caroline Nokes, Minister of State for Immigration:
Guidance for universities on fulfilling their responsibilities towards international employees and students on sponsored visas is available on the UK Visas and Immigration website at:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/sponsor-a-tier-2-or-5-worker-guidance-for-employers and https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/sponsor-a-tier-4-student-guidance-for-educators respectively.
Information on the number of foreign members of staff and students reported to UK immigration authorities for failing to declare their attendance and time spent off campus is not collated on Home Office systems in a manner which can be reported on, and to do so could only be achieved at disproportionate cost by examination of thousands of records.
