International Students Stranded in UK

"Urgent notice," "It is with great regret that after nearly 10 years of trading, the decision to close the college has had to be made. No access is permitted to the building by any students, staff, visitors or suppliers."


The mood among the college's hundreds of mainly overseas students was one of total panic as the college sponsored all their visas, they were now unclear about their status in the UK.


The students later found that they had just 60 days from UKBA's notification to find an alternative college and paying for another visa and another set of fees or to go home.

Students have to double check UK school status and accreditation before sending any money.
