OISC Level 1 Accreditation: Introduction to immigration, asylum, nationality and EU law: 16 CPD

About this course

This course was last updated in January 2022.

Welcome to our complete and comprehensive online immigration law starter training course! It is ideal for aspiring OISC Level 1 advisers seeking accreditation and other budding immigration lawyers. We cover everything you need to know to get started in immigration law and get accredited with the OISC: what is it, how does it work, all about family and business immigration, nationality law, the EU Settlement Scheme and more.

We have carefully designed and written the course to cover absolutely everything in the OISC Level 1 syllabus. We use simple, plain English, diagrams, infographics and worked examples throughout the course as well as auto-marking “test yourself” questions at the end of every course unit.

We offer three bonus timed mock exams modelled closely on real OISC Level 1 exam papers AND a detailed course on legal ethics for OISC advisers, signposting and referral, exam preparation and everything else you need to know to be an OISC Level 1 adviser. Our mock exams provide customised feedback: if you are getting answers on certain topics wrong, we’ll point that out and suggest further reading for you.

At your own leisure, in your own time, in your own home you can spend as long as you need on this and our many other online courses. You can check out the course content below.
