London Metropolitan University – HTS back

April 10, 2013

London Metropolitan University reapplied for Highly Trusted Sponsor status in March after waiting the obligatory six months following the events of late August.

The vice-chancellor told the Financial Times today that the Border Agency/Home Office decision had cost the university £20million this year as its overseas numbers dropped to 1 000 continuing students from its anticipated level of 4 000.

A judicial review into the original decision is scheduled for October but with the government announcing the dissolution of the UKBA, there is still time for an out of court settlement. This would be a pity as there is information of public interest still that will only be confirmed in full by such a process.
