I hereby apply for leave to remain in the UK for myself, and any dependants listed in this form, as a student/student nurse. The information I have given is complete and is true to the best of my knowledge. I also declare that the photograph(s) submitted with this form is/are a true likeness of myself and any dependants included in the application, as named on the back of each photograph.

I confirm that if, before this application is decided, there is a material change in my circumstances or new information relevant to this application becomes available, I will inform the Home Office.

I understand that all information given by me will be treated in confidence but may be disclosed to other government departments, agencies, local authorities and other bodies to enable them to carry out their functions.

I understand that the Home Office may make enquiries of the institution(s) named in sections 3.1 and/or 4.2 of this form in order to establish whether I meet the requirements of the Immigration Rules with regard to satisfactory attendance and progress. I consent to the institution(s) named in those sections disclosing details of my attendance and progress to the Home Office in response to any such enquiries. I also consent to their informing the Home Office on their own initiative if I cease to attend any course of study with them for which I have been given leave to enter or remain in the United Kingdom.

I am aware that it is an offence under the Immigration Act 1971, as amended by the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, to make to a person acting in execution of the Act a statement or representation which the maker knows to be false or does not believe to be true, or to obtain or to seek to obtain leave to remain in the United Kingdom by means which include deception.

Immigration advisers

This form is designed to enable you to make your own application. If you consider it necessary to seek advice in completing it or in dealing with any other aspect of your application, you should take care when choosing an adviser. The Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) regulates immigration advisers. Generally, only solicitors, barristers and legal executives who hold a practising certificate do not need OISC authorisation. Anyone else could be committing a criminal offence if they act on your behalf without being OISC authorised or otherwise exempted. If your adviser is not a solicitor, barrister or legal executive you should ask if they are OISC authorised. A list of OISC authorised advisers is on their website at www.oisc.gov.uk which has links to websites for solicitors, barristers and legal executives. To complain about an immigration adviser, call the OISC (tel 0845 000 0046 - calls charged at local rate) or write to OISC, 6th Floor, Fleetbank House, 2-6 Salisbury Square, London EC4Y 8JX.
