UK cancels London Metropolitan University licence to recruit foreign students


The London Metropolitan University has campuses in the City of London and in the London Borough of Islington, the University was established in the year 2002. An investigation carried out by Britain’s immigration authorities has exposed “serious systemic failures”. It was reported that a quarter of overseas students sampled at London Metropolitan University did not have permission to stay in the country while a “significant proportion” did not have a good standard of English.

The University has over 2000 foreign students including Indians, the fate of these students is at a jeopardy. A 60 day time period has been given to students to migrate to other Universities or else these students are required to return back to their home country. Indian students studying in the University are worrying about the extra cost they need to bear to continue their studies. However concerned authorities are ensuring less loss for genuine students by helping them find another University in UK.

The University has set up a Help Centre to support and advise students. The number is +44 (0) 20 7133 4141
