Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
No. You are thinking of curtailment when a sponsored job ends early.
No, unless the Tier 2 leave itself has expired.
That isn't an immigration requirement, but you should probably check the terms and conditions of your employment to see if there is anything there about it.
I'm sorry to bother again, but PLEASE could anyone give me some aid on this? Even if it's not a definite response. I am absolutely lost, and the immigration advisors at my new institution said they could not give me a response.
Given that this is about whether your employer will allow you to continue working for them, I don't understand why you seem to be asking everyone except the employer about this matter. The student advisers at your university will have no specific expertise in work visa issues, and while this board is useful for discussion it is never good to solicit visa advice from the unqualified unregulated general public.
because I would not like to let my employer know before I have been granted my new visa, just to be on the safe side.
Thanks, this does point me in the right direction, i.e., knowing that the change to T4 would be immediate and what I would be looking for is working under a T4.sah10406 wrote: ↑Fri Jun 07, 2019 11:43 amThe principle in UK immigration is that when new leave is granted, it automatically cancels any previous leave. The question is, when you are granted Tier 4 leave, will your employer allow you to continue to work for them under your new Tier 4 work conditions. That is a question for them. For sure there is no specific provision under the Tier 4 work conditions to allow work before the start of the course, only during and after, so you probably need to be prepared for not being allowed to work.
But not before the course starts.
You have misread the requirement. It is about some previous financial sponsorship under Tier 4, nothing to do with Tier 2. See paragraphs 212 and 213 of the Tier 4 guidance.
Many thanks once again for your response. I know, I had read that so I wasn't worried about it. But then, during the application, I was asked
Sure, I have asked and they are dealing with my case. But I have great respect for the advice given in this forum and that's why I ask, if that's not a problem. It usually points me in the right direction to further investigate in the guidelines. I understand it is nothing more than that and I won't proceed solely on the basis of the answers I get here.
That is not what an official financial sponsor means. See paragraphs 209 to 213 of the Tier 4 guidance for what it means.
