-Could you explain your situation a little more?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

If a student doesn't attend his class regularly and working too much exceeding permitted
hours(20 hours per week),what is the maximal action that UKBA officers can take against?

The student is working over 20 hours and abusing student visa by not attending classes but working to earn.
And if the school ensures that the student is attending regularly,and in reality,they just
filled attendance for that student,is this a immigration offence?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 6 years ago.
That would be an immigration offence.

A student visa requires that a person attend 15 hours at least of study - obviously unless there is good cause like genuine sickness. And cannot work more than 20 hours during term time and 40 outside of term time.

If there is information upon a breach you can give then you can report it here

If the school are complicit in this then they would be committing an immigration offence and the authorities are aware of this type of thing.
