The Home Office has announced this month that international Tier 4 students will be granted UK visas to study at London Metropolitan University, which has been granted a new sponsors licence.

The decision follows legal action against the removal of the university’s Tier 4 sponsor licence last August 2012.

A number of further inspections carried out by the Home Office in the last 6 months have ‘demonstrated that the university has made the necessary improvements to its systems and administration’.

The university now meets the requirements needed to sponsor international students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA), the Home Office said.

London Met University will now be subject to a ‘probationary period’ in order to ‘build a track record of compliance with the new students they enrol, which is in line with Home Office policy guidance.

During the probationary period there will be a limit on the number of Tier 4 international students the university can recruit from outside the EU.

The Home Office said that its inspection teams ‘looked at areas of concern that led to the revocation of the university’s licence last year, and have worked with university staff to ensure they have appropriate processes for recruiting and monitoring their international students’. Source: Home Office/UK Border Agency.

The revocation of a government run London University’s licence to recruit overseas students has done enormous damage to the UK’s reputation in the international education market.

Since the government’s ‘clampdown’ on the industry, UK Universities are reporting a 20% fall in the numbers of students applying from India.
