UK withdraws London Metropolitan University’s licence to sponsor International students

NEWS: UK withdraws London Metropolitan University’s licence to sponsor students

Study Subjects: All fields
Scholarship Level: All levels
Scholarship Provider: N/A
Scholarship can be taken at: UK

Scholarship Description
The UK Border Agency has revoked (withdrawn) London Metropolitan University's licence to sponsor students from outside the European Union.

The withdrawal of London Metropolitan University's licence means that it is removed from the register of licensed sponsors, and students from outside the European Union are no longer allowed to study at the university.

We understand that international students at London Metropolitan University may be concerned.

London Metropolitan University students who are already in the UK with a current, valid UK visa do not need to do anything immediately.

A government-led taskforce is being created, which will include the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), Universities UK, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the UK Border Agency and the National Union of Students. This will work with London Metropolitan to support those affected and enable appropriately qualified genuine students to find another institution where they can continue their studies in the UK. The taskforce will start work immediately.

If an existing London Metropolitan University student with a current, valid visa is on holiday outside the UK, they can return to the UK.

New students who were planning to travel to the UK to start studying with London Metropolitan University should not travel.

A UK Border Agency spokesperson said:'These are problems with 1 university, not the whole sector. British universities are among the best in the world - and Britain remains a top-class destination for top-class international students.

'We are doing everything possible, working with the taskforce established by BIS, to assist students that have been affected.'
