Looking ahead to the OISC Level 1 qualification
We hope that you have found this overview of UK immigration law and advice both useful and interesting.
If you want to take your studies further and are planning to take the first steps towards becoming an immigration adviser, then you may be interested in our course. This is explored further in Audio 1.
To help you decide what to do next, this final section illustrates the expectations of an immigration adviser by introducing the OISC’s Level 1 competencies.
As an agency of the UK Government, the OISC is responsible for regulating immigration advice services. All immigration advisers must follow its Code of Standards.
Level 1 advisers are expected to demonstrate a range of competencies (OISC, 2021).
Activity 1: Thinking about the OISC’s Level 1 competencies
Reflect on the OISC’s Level 1 competencies. Which ones do you think you already possess? Are there any others that you hope to develop through further study? Note down your thoughts in the space below.
There is no correct answer to this activity, which was designed to encourage you to reflect on your current knowledge and identify what you hope to gain from your studies of future courses. Please keep a note of your reflections, because they may prove to be a useful reminder if you plan further study.
With very best wishes for your future studies.
