The focus of the session is how Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 4 have evolved in recent years from being categories which were subject to objective criteria, with a sliding scale of points awarded for various attributes, to routes where points are awarded on an “all or nothing” basis and where there is an increasing level of subjectivity in the decision making process.
The presentation will highlight areas where, following the most recent changes to the UK Immigration Rules, there is an increased likelihood of subjectivity being applied and will provide information on how this new discretion is likely to be exercised.
