'Karma's knowledge is detailed and excellent yet she can put it across in an understandable way'


British citizenship is the end goal for most immigration clients, meaning an understanding of its routes and requirements should inform the work of all practitioners from start to finish.

The first part of this new course will consider citizenship applications, looking at the two main naturalisation routes open to adults, including the requirements, common problems and pitfalls, application forms, and procedural considerations.

The second part will focus on citizenship through registration, including the commonest applications for children in the UK, as well as more complex registration routes for children and adults both in the UK and abroad.

The course will benefit those with no prior experience, as well as delegates with basic application experience or those keen to expand their knowledge base.
