London Metropolitan University's visa licence revoked

More than 2,000 students potentially face deportation after a London university had its licence to teach and recruit overseas students revoked.

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

Ministers say the university is not tracking course attendance and that many students have no right to be here.

Keith Vaz, chairman of the home affairs select committee, says the decision has caused chaos and confusion.
