- More than a quarter of the 101 students sampled were studying at the university when they had no leave to remain in this country
- Some 20 of 50 checked files found "no proper evidence" that the students' mandatory English levels had been reached
- And some 142 of 250 (57%) sampled records had attendance monitoring issues, which meant it was impossible for the university to know whether students were turning up for classes or not.
Lately, I think UKBA's conduct is very eccentric. They are desperate to cut net migration as a futile struggle and always drew a line between EU and non-EU. No wonder, the government has a target to cut net migration to tens of thousands by the end of the Parliament. The net migration to the UK has fallen but remains at more than double the government's target of less than 100,000 per year. There is no doubt that the government remains a long way from its goal. They are so blind to see other effects and they are blind to all faults from all possibility area to accomplish the goal.
But I feel their way is a bit reckless, ruthless, cruel, unethical and disproportionate, and which excites a feeling of opposition. It's common sense as human beings, isn't it?
At least a few decades ago, the UK was very attractive country to study. They had a high quality and a high education. The British Council had much more nice service to provide information about universities and English schools. But now the government scheme has prevented the way to access them. They welcome foreign funds but no non-EU people. Obviously the UK has been changing into the distant country for students and other people.
