London Metropolitan University’s Licence Revoked.

London Metropolitan University‘s visa licence revoked.
A London university has been banned from teaching overseas students, leaving more than 2,000 undergraduates potentially facing deportation.
London Metropolitan University has had its ability to sponsor students from outside the EU revoked, and will no longer be allowed to authorise visas.

The UK Border Agency said it had “failed to address serious and systemic failings” identified six months ago.

A task force has been set up to help students affected by the decision.

As well as stopping the university, which has 30,000 students in total, from accepting new applications, losing the licence could also affect thousands of existing overseas students at the university.
The National Union of Students (NUS) said it could mean more than 2,000 students being deported within 60 days unless they find another sponsor.

‘Panic and heartbreak’
