Barking and Dagenham College has had its licence to sponsor international students suspended, it has been reported.
But the college, based in Dagenham Road, Dagenham, is refuting claims it has been taken off the list, telling a national newspaper it is “in negotiations” with the UK Border Agency.
If suspended, it will be the first to have been removed from the Home Office’s list of registered student sponsors in over a year.
The college is thought to have been taken off the publicly available list at the end of August.
It degree courses validated by the universities of East London (UEL), Northampton and the Creative Arts.
