More Than 2,500 Foreign Students at London University Face Deportation

Immigration officials revoked the college's license


Hundreds of Indian students, among over 2,600 non-European Union students at UK's London Metropolitan University (LMU), face deportation after immigration officials on Wednesday revoked the varsity's licence to admit international students due to "serious and systemic failures".

In a move that sent ripples across Britain's higher education sector, the UK Border Agency (UKBA) stripped LMU of its licence to admit international students, putting the future of its non-EU students in jeopardy.
