Update on London Met and international students

No ratings yet. Log in to rate.

On Sunday 26 August the Sunday Times reported that London Metropolitan University had lost its license to sponsor international students. Since then, the Home Office have clearly stated that they have yet to make a decision about the institution's status.

London Metropolitan University's Vice Chancellor, Malcolm Gillies, has responded to the current situation by setting up a helpline for worried London Met students. The number for this line is:  +44 (0) 20 7133 4141.

Advice for international students at London Met

Currently, London Metropolitan University has had its Highly Trusted Sponsor license suspended. This means that at the moment it is not allowed to recruit any NEW international students to its courses. Those students that are already studying at London Met University still have leave to remain in the UK. If London Met's sponsor status changes this may affect the status of current international students.

Current international students can seek more advice from the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA), either through their helpline: +44 (0) 20 7107 9922 or by reading their briefing.

What happens to students if London Met has its license revoked?

IF London Met has its license revoked, which is yet to be announced, then it will no longer be able to recruit or sponsor international students. If such a decision is made, international students will then be issued a Letter Of Curtailment. They will then have 60 days from the date they receive the Letter of Curtailment to either be accepted onto a course at a different institution in the UK, or to leave the UK.  

IF this situation occurs, NUS will issue more detailed information. For now, it is important to reiterate that no decision has been made on London Met's status.
