Metropolitan University granted new licence

International students will be permitted to enter the UK to study at London Metropolitan University from today.

This decision follows the removal of the university’s sponsor licence in August 2012.

A series of inspections carried out by the Home Office in the last 6 months have demonstrated that the university has made the necessary improvements to its systems and administration. The university now meets the requirements needed to sponsor international students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA).

In line with Home Office policy, the university will now be subject to a probationary period in order to build a track record of compliance with the new students they enrol.

During this period there will also be a limit on the number of international students the university can enrol.
