The A's Tier 4 leave expired on 25 October 2010 and, on the basis of a further course offer, she had the opportunity to make a further application for an extension of student leave. She was diverted from doing that by the SSHD inviting her some 5 months earlier on 27 May 2010 to make an application under the legacy programme, which the unrepresented A complied with. That legacy invitation was wholly inappropriate in the A's circumstances and inevitably led to a refusal. By that time the A had become an overstayer. The court held the SSHD responsible for the consequences of her inappropriate action. Judicial Review granted.
