The University of Bedfordshire gets a positive nod from the Home Office to resume its recruitment of international students. Previously, the University was forced to check its acceptance of students from outside the European Union in the month of June. The announcement came from immigration minister James Brokenshire under the suspect that English language qualifications were used to gain entry to education institutions.
Clearing the clouds of doubt, the university has been given a clean report after a review by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI), part of the Home Office.

Earlier a margin of 57 private colleges, along with Glyndwr, had their licences to recruit international students but again falsified the allegations about systematic abuse in the English language tests as a measure to gain visas by students.
Although, licences were not suspended for Bedfordshire and West London but were stopped for with any further Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) letters till the review and other procedures were completed.
After the review was completed UKVI has given a wave to Bedfordshire for continuing the recruitment of overseas students. While, West London and Glyndwr have to still wait for their audits.
Expressing his delight, Bill Rammell, Bedfordshire’s vice-chancellor, said “I was always confident that our procedures for monitoring international students were robust, and I’m pleased that UKVI’s thorough and detailed audit has confirmed this.”
Further he emphasized that the immigration compliance responsibilities are taken extremely seriously and it is done keeping in accord of excellent student experience and graduate employability success.
