Points Based Calculator to be Switched Off


<1 min

Posted on 16 Mar 2016

The Home Office has confirmed that it will be switching off its Points-Based Calculator from 6 April 2016.

Previously, applicants could use the Points-Based Calculator to confirm that their overseas degree qualifications were sufficient to meet the English language requirement. The Home Office has advised that it is too costly to manage and maintain the calculator on-line, which is why it is being withdrawn. Applicants now need to assess whether their overseas degree meets the requirements of the rules themselves.

If you would like assistance with ensuring your qualifications meet the English language requirements or any other aspect of your visa application, please do not hesitate to contact our specialist business immigration team on 0207 329 9090 or email Victoria Burnip at vburnip@doyleclayton.co.uk
