The Immigration and Asylum Law short course is taught over 10 weekly classes at City's central London location.

It is an area of huge current interest within the media and relevant to all workplaces. Tutored by industry experts, the programme is based on expert knowledge and gives the flexibility of allowing you to continue working whilst developing new skills and abilities.
Students will be 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.
