No, but this is nothing to do with any recent changes. It has never been possible to switch from short-term student to Tier 2 in the UK. You would need to apply for a Tier 2 visa outside the UK, which would mean some different responsibilities for your Tier 2 sponsor employer.desiganp wrote: ↑Tue Feb 13, 2018 9:08 amI am a MBA student who is doing my first semester in UK (Sep 2017 to Feb 2018) and my second semester in Paris (Mar 2018 to Jul 2018).
Currently I am on a short term study visa in UK. As per the new regulations passed on January 2018 by home office, can my visa be converted to Tier2 ?
I think you may be misunderstanding the Tier 2 sponsorship process. A Tier 2 application is sponsored by your employer, not by your university (unless they are your employer, of course).
