London Metropolitan University may become the first in Britain to be banned from educating foreign students.
The University has previously been allowed to sponsor visas, but authorities no longer trust it to monitor its students and ensure they don't become illegal immigrants.
It means that around 2,600 students from outside the European Union will have 60 days to find places on other courses at a different institution, or they will be forced to leave the UK.
However a Border Agency spokesperson said: "We have not made a decision yet.”
They added: "All education providers have to meet strict standards, ensuring that they provide high quality education, and take their immigration responsibilities seriously. We will not tolerate any abuse of the immigration system.”
Looks like a few runaways and/or asylum requests are on the cards?
