Non-EEA students of London college 'face deportation'
Some overseas students of a college will be deported if they cannot find a new sponsor, UK Border Agency said.
The UKBA revoked London School of Management's licence to sponsor visas for non-European Economic Area students at the Uxbridge Road, Ealing, college.
The Tier 4 sponsor licence was removed in September as the college failed "to ensure their students have a genuine right to be here", the UKBA said.
The BBC has contacted the college but has so far not received a response.
The UKBA said the students had 60 days to find a new sponsor and it would be writing to them to inform them of the rules and the deadline.
Any non-EU or non-European Economic Area (EEA) national, with the exemption of applicants from Switzerland, needs to apply for a Tier 4 Adult or General Student visa for a course longer than six months or have appropriate visa clearance to enter the UK for a shorter time.
'Not playing part'
It is not yet clear how many of the college's hundreds of students will have to look for a new sponsors.
The agency's action comes following an investigation, which is still ongoing, into students visas.
A spokesman said: "The UK Border Agency will take action against colleges that we believe are not playing their part in ensuring their students have a genuine right to be here.
"The London School of Management has had its licence revoked for failing to comply with these standards."
