Guidance for Trainees on Tier 4 Visas
Please see the UK Foundation Programme Office guidance below relating to Less than Full Time Applications
“Sponsored doctors must be undertaking the Foundation Programme in a full time post. If the foundation doctor opts to train less than full time at any point during the programme, employers must notify the local foundation school, who will report it to the UKFPO as their sponsor. Working less than full time will invalidate a doctor’s Tier 4 visa.”(‘Tier 4 guidance for foundation schools and employers’, Produced by the UK Foundation Programme Office June 2013).
