UK Universities buying out private colleges or partnerning them!

No Comments

The strict regulations imposed by the UKBA to curb Private Higher Education institutions in the UK has created a void in the market which various UK Universities have grabbed with both hands. Several universities are buying out private colleges or partnering private colleges and making them their extended campuses.

University of Wolverhampton has acquired a campus in London by the name of Buckingham College of London.

The new campus is offering top-up in Bsc health studies and BSc Computer Sc. The fees are 6,100 GBP. The University is accepting nursing diplomas and other health qualifications for admission to the top-up. The students will at the end of the programme have an opportunity to work in the UK. While this is not guaranteed the University has a placement company which has confirmed they will be able to place these students in the health industry including nursing homes.

The University also has an MBA available at 7000 GBP at the London campus. Admissions for the above mentioned programmes are open for Sept 2011 with more courses to follow for the Jan intake.

Kindly note CAS for this institution will be issued by the University and the students would be eligible for all benefits that students have at any UK university, such as part time work and Secure English Language Test non compulsory.

Similarly, Glyndŵr University has partnered with London School of Management and Science to form its London campus, the Glyndwr London School of Management and Science (LSMS).

The business college, which is based in South London, has up till now been offering programs validated by Glyndŵr University for more than 18 months.

Some of the courses which will be offered at this campus include MBA, BA (Hons) Business Management and BSc (Hons) Health Studies.

UK Universities seems to be choosing London as the favorite destination to open a campus in-order to attract the vast number of international students. Some other Universities in UK like Coventry University have also opened its London campus.

40% Indian Students Used Fraud for UK Visa-Time to ReDO Your Application!

No Comments

In a recent revelation made by the British immigration officials, it has been found that up to 40% of the Indian students who applied for UK student visa used fraudulent means to make their application perfect. These are the results derived from the number of applications received by the British government in the first three months of this year alone.

Such kind of a surge in deceptive activities to secure an entry into UK can be owed to the upcoming new rules to be introduced by the British government for the students applying for a UK student visa starting this April. These new rules are said to be quite rigid and more stringent than the present rules in existence.

Perhaps this can be cited as the reason for the growing unrest amongst students from India to get admission into UK universities and colleges.

According to a British senior immigration official, around 200 Indian students who applied for a course in accountancy programme in UK presented their applications with all the apt documents. But upon interview round, barely 6 or 7 could manage to speak in English.

This is not the first time that British government has aired its concerns regarding the rise in illegal immigration to UK by Indian students. Last year i.e. in January 2010, UK government temporarily suspended the visa applications from North India along with Nepal and Bangladesh due to the unprecedented rise in the applications received for UK student visa.

To stop the fraudulent and captive activities for gaining an entry into UK are being cited as the strong reasons for the UK government’s new rules.

Current rules for UK Student Visa
•A score equivalent to B1 level. It means that a score of 4.5 in IELTS [ International English Language Testing System] or
•Score of 57 in TOEFL [ Test Of English as a Foreign Language]

Proposed New Rules for UK Student Visa in effect from 6th April 2011
•A higher score of 5.5 in IELTS or
•A score of 87 in TOEFL
•Increased scrutiny on funding availability of applicants

Of course you wouldn’t want to land in this 40% category of Indian students who used fraudulent means to gain an entry into UK. To avoid such hassles and secure a legitimate UK student visa for your desired course, contact a competent overseas consultant company.

UK Announces Visa Cuts for Non EU Students-The Competition Rises for Indian Aspirants

No Comments

In an announcement that was as expected as it was the monsoon rains, UK government declared that it would be cutting down the number of Visa issued to Non EU students coming to study in UK. The government would bring down the student visas issued by a large amount up to 80,000 an year.

This decision has come in light of the rise in abuse of study in UK route as an easy method of migration into the country. This has caused serious reasons of worry to the British government since quite some time now.

It had made its concerns public earlier too on various occasions and this decision in visa cuts for Non EUs was dreaded by many especially India and China who are going to be most affected by it.

According to Indian stats, there are around 34,000 students pursuing studies in UK at present. British data which takes into account sub-graduates also show more than 50,000 Indian students studying in UK, the second largest after the population of Chinese students in UK.

The UK government has made its target quite clear. It wants to ensure that only serious students get admission into genuine colleges of UK and put a stop to all the bogus degree awarding institutions of the country.

This would also reflect in the work permit granted to post graduate students. Only those Non EU students who posses offer of skilled jobs from sponsoring employers will be allowed to stay back in UK.

The number of studying opportunities for Indian students will in indeed become limited after the decision came out on last Tuesday. Indian government though apprehensive about this decision has shown its full support to the British government.

Home Secretary Theresa May affirmed that they too like UK wants to maintain the quality of education. The students should be able to go to UK colleges but only those with a fair chance who wish to study in genuine courses.

UK government is hoping to bring down the number of Non EU immigrants from 2, 00,000 [in 2010] to tens of thousands by the year 2015.

Not surprisingly enough, UK universities have shown their disapproval over this decision. After all, it would cut down into their annual income of rupees 30 trillion amounting from foreign students alone.

If you wish to study in UK, then don’t waste your time. To ensure you get a seat in your desired college of UK, contact offices of Future Defined, one of the leading overseas consultants of Delhi.

CAS Allotment System- Cause of Problems in Students’ Fee Refunds

The new system of CAS [Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies] introduced by the UKBA [United Kingdom Border Agency] in place of the earlier visa letter is said to make things much more easy for both students and education institutions in UK. However, one clause regarding the students fee refund policy has landed both students and UK Universities in a catch 22 situation.

Apparently, under this new system of CAS, universities and colleges would be allotted quota for admitting a specific number of students into their schools. CAS is similar to a database record. A unique CAS number is issued for each student. These CAS reference numbers are provided by UKBA under a fixed quota system to all the sponsoring colleges and universities.

This CAS number is given to a student after he makes the initial fee payment to the college. With this reference number he can apply for permission to stay in UK under Tier 4 student visa. However, if the student fails to continue the course due to some reasons, then his fees refund depends upon the will of the college.

Student’s point of view
A student in case gets a refusal of visa from UKBA, then he or she stands to lose his whole investment!
The college may not refund him fees as once the CAS is issued it cannot be used again for any other student!

College’s Point of View
The college too loses in terms of quota. Suppose a student can’t continue his studies due to personal reasons after CAS has been issued by the college then college will lose that one particular CAS number forever. Once the CAS is submitted it goes into the records and it cannot be used again!

Perhaps this can be ctes as one of the reasons for colleges becoming more stringent in their student fee refund policy whereupon they might not give back the full amount.

That’s why we mentioned earlier it’s a catch 22 situation for both the parties.

The basic problem lies in the rules formed by UKBA which if can be formulated would make life much more smooth for students and colleges as well!

Dual degree programs if one goes by logic does make the most sense in today’s expensive times! Education is not getting cheaper anyhow and getting your masters degree is extremely important to survive in tough competitive world. With both the things going in opposite directions, it is the student who stands to suffer! Thus, dual degree programs in UK sound like a good idea for a student to benefit on both grounds-cost and academic. But we will come back to it later.

First the question is what exactly are these dual degree programs in UK?

Dual degree programs are generally a collaborative course in which a student is granted two degrees from two colleges who sign an agreement for the dual degree course. These courses are thus offered either in two ways-

•One phase in home school and the other in the host school with credit granted by both the institutions
•Studying in just one school and the arrangement of teachers and classes from other school in your present school only!

A student is entitled to a double degree granted by both the institutions at the end of their course which is very feasible. It is mostly available at masters level and students prefer to do it for MBA and likewise courses.

Why dual degree in UK is important?

One can acquire a dual degree programme from anywhere in the world. It’s not that difficult. But UK excels in competitive post graduation courses which are dynamic in nature. In addition, UK universities and colleges have a sound reputation in the international education market and an internationally recognized dual degree will look much good on your resume.

One should also look at the cost factor attached with the post graduation studies. Masters degree in UK is anyway of just one year in duration as compared to other countries. This automatically saves you one whole year’s worth of tuition fees. To add icing on the cake, you earn an additional degree alongside your main study programme like MBA degree with ACCA [Association of Chartered Certified Accountants].

These double degree programmes are readily available at renowned colleges and universities of UK like London School of Business & Finance in London. The college offers dual degrees for MBA, MIB, Msc. in Finance, MSc. in Marketing with ACCA (Association of Charted Certified Accountants), CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants), CFA® (Chartered Financial Analyst), CIM (Chartered Institute of Marketing)

The MBA degree can be alternately awarded by either GGSB a known school accredited by AMBA, EQUIS, AACSB or by LSBF itself!

Like this there are various other dual degree programmes in UK available at various universities and colleges. Join one now to have double treat!
