Educational institutions which could be stripped of their highly-trusted sponsored status

Manon made this Freedom of Information request to Home Office

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Home Office did not have the information requested.

Dear Home Office,

I am looking at the sponsorship scheme and its effects on Tier 4 students. Figures in the Guardian provided by you say that out of the 1,700 educational institutions in the United Kingdom, 105 could now have their licenses to recruit overseas students lifted. Would it be possible to have this list?

Yours faithfully,

Manon Benlolo

Dear Manon Benlolo,

 

Thank you for your recent enquiry.  This falls to be dealt with under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

I am unclear about the exact scope of the information in which you are
interested. Section 1(3) of the Freedom of Information Act provides that a
public authority need not comply with a request for information unless any
further information reasonably required to identify and locate the
information is supplied. To ensure that we provide you with the right
information, please could you clarify your request, so that we can process
your request.

 

‘I am looking at the sponsorship scheme and its effects on Tier 4
students. Figures in the Guardian provided by you say that out of the
1,700 educational institutions in the United Kingdom, 105 could now have
their licenses to recruit overseas students lifted. Would it be possible
to have this list?’

 

Can you please confirm whether by ‘lifted’ you are referring to the
process of licences being suspended and/or revoked.

When you provide this information we will aim to send you a full response
to your request within twenty working days of its receipt. I look forward
to hearing from you shortly. However, please note that if I do not receive
appropriate clarification of your request within three months from the
date of this letter, I will consider this request to be closed.

 

 

Kind regards
