latest update on London Metropolitan University’s licence to sponsor

24 September 2012

London Metropolitan University has launched a legal challenge in response to the UK Border Agency’s (UKBA) recent decision to revoke its Licence to Sponsor. The initial challenge was heard on Friday.

A judge refused a request for the UKBA’s decision to be suspended, however, he did give permission for the University to proceed to judicial review.

Pending the full hearing, existing students and those that are due to start this term, will be permitted to continue studying at the University until their course has ended or until the end of the academic year, whichever is sooner. However, this will only be the case for those students who are legally entitled to do so. Students who do not hold valid leave to remain or who do not meet the immigration criteria will not be permitted to stay in the UK.

For those that employ students attending the University, you should bear in mind that the UKBA will be making additional checks on affected students at the University.
