British University Loses Right to Enroll Foreign Students
British authorities have barred London Metropolitan University from enrolling foreign students, leaving currently enrolled students in a quandary and setting off concern among many British universities, Times Higher Education reported. Government investigators found that many foreign students at the university did not have authorization to be there, and that many of those who did lacked sufficient English language skills to benefit. The 2,600 students from outside Britain who are enrolled at London Metropolitan have 60 days to enroll at another university or to leave the country. Leaders from other universities in Britain said that they are worried that the incident will reflect on their institutions, and some questioned whether the government could have worked to find other ways to resolve concerns about London Metropolitan.
