Glyndwr University has had its right to sponsor foreign students suspended, after an investigation into fraud in the student visa system at a large number of universities and colleges around the UK.
Immigration Minister James Brokenshire said an inquiry had found evidence of 'organised criminality' over falsified English language tests, and up to 48,000 overseas students potentially may have falsely obtained English language certificates.
He said 230 students sponsored by North Wales' Glyndwr University have so far been identified as having 'invalid' test results - with another 120 being described as 'questionable.'
Mr Brokenshire said: "the Home Office suspended the highly-trusted sponsor status – that is the right to sponsor foreign students – of Glyndwr University."
"In addition, we have suspended the licences of 57 private further education colleges."
"We have told a further two universities – the University of Bedfordshire and the University of West London – that they are no longer allowed to sponsor new students pending further investigations which will decide whether they too should be suspended."
