Careful consideration is given to which countries could be added to Appendix H of the Immigration Rules, taking into account objective analysis of a range of factors including the volume of students from a country and their Tier 4 immigration compliance risk. On this occasion, India did not meet the objective criteria required for inclusion in Appendix H.

The list of countries in Appendix H will be regularly updated to reflect the fact that countries’ risk profiles change over time.
