The vice chancellor at London Metropolitan University has described claims that led to the institution losing its visa licence as "not particularly cogent" and said it would be disputing them:
– Professor Malcolm Gillies, London Metropolitan University vice chancellor
I am not going to say that we accept what is stated in the letter sent to us revoking our licence.
We only received it at 8pm last night and are currently doing a full analysis, working together with the best lawyers in the country.
I would go so far as to say that UKBA has been rewriting its own guidelines on this issue and this is something which should cause concern to all universities in the UK.
