UK fraud investigation update: 65 colleges lose licenses, 600 students removed
As a result of a sustained government crackdown on testing and visa fraud, more than 600 individuals have been removed, or are pending removal, from the UK, and 65 private colleges have lost their Highly Trusted Status enabling them to recruit Tier 4 international students. Over 5,000 refusal, curtailment or rejection decisions have been made due to the results of theinvestigation into fraudulent TOEIC exam results being used to obtain student visas that began in June 2014. The home office began sending out letters to students who were either studying at or had an open application from one of the colleges in question in December, instructing them to find a new provider within 60 days or leave the UK.
