300 Indian students in UK face deportation

The London Metropolitan University has been banned from teaching overseas students, leaving more than 2,000 under-graduates potentially facing deportation. This includes 300 Indian students too and their fate now hangs in balance.
The London Metropolitan University's overseas recruitment licence was suspended last month during a UK Border Agency investigation. It found that a significant number of students were staying in the country illegally and there was no sufficient evidence that they met mandatory English levels.
The UKBA also found that the university was unaware about whether students were attending classes.
The National Union of Students has contacted Prime Minister David Cameron, reiterating the potential damage to the 12.5 billion pound UK Higher Education industry.
There is a particular problem for students joining for the year beginning in September, they don't know what lies ahead and there is a problem for the second and third year students who may now have to move elsewhere or move back because the government survey at this university found that that a quarter of the students sampled have no visas to stay in this country, and there is no saying as to how many ever attended classes here or can speak any English.
This decision is likely to have repercussions for other universities and other students too.
