R (on the application of Syed and another) v Secretary of State for the Home Department; Kamran and another v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Leave to remain. Two cases were listed for hearing together because they both raised issues concerning the qualifications necessary for the grant of leave to remain as a Tier 1 (General) Migrant or a Tier 1 (Post-Study Work) Migrant under the points based system in Pt 6A of the Immigration Rules 1994 (HC 395) (the Rules). The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appeals, held that the qualifications of the claimants in the first action were not eligible for points as a UK recognised bachelor or postgraduate degree. The claimants in the second action had failed to establish that delegation of the recognition role the National Recognition Information Centre for the United Kingdom was unlawful.
