Course Content

Students on the Immigration and Asylum Law short course will learn what the sources of law are. They are provided with refusal letters and case determinations in order to understand what the decision maker is considering, e.g. in a spousal refusal the judge may be examining the intention of the parties. Then discussion is held on the evidence that can demonstrate intention. Case scenarios are given to students drafted in a similar way to examination questions so those students who wish to progress their career in immigration law may be better prepared.

During this part-time Immigration and Asylum Law course the following topics are covered: nationality, visiting the UK, points based system applications from students and workers, marriage and family applications, asylum applications and appeals, human rights impacting on immigration and asylum matters, European Union law, removal, deportation and appeals.
