Student: 'My dreams are shattered'

London Metropolitan University has been stripped of its ability to authorise visas for students coming to study from outside the EU.

London Metropolitan University has had its right to sponsor students from outside the EU revoked, and will no longer be allowed to authorise visas.

The UK Border Agency says student attendance is not being monitored and that many have no right to be here.

The university said it would be challenging UKBA's claims.

Abhimanyu Agarwal, 22, in Calcutta was due to start his MBA at London Metropolitan University this autumn.

He told BBC Asian Network reporter Catrin Nye he now can't get a place at another university.
