Nearly half institutions on London Met 'clearing' list are privately funded

Nearly half of the institutions to which London Met’s displaced international students can transfer will be private ones.
 
The university lost its licence to teach international students at the end of August. Although it's challenging the ruling, it's been working with organisations including Hefce, BIS and the National Union of Students to establish a clearing house to help its students find other institutions where they can complete their courses.
 
Documents seen by EducationInvestor show that that taskforce has now identified 15 London-based higher education providers to which London Met students could realistically transfer. 
 
Six of these are privately funded. They are: BPP, the College of Law, Greenwich School of Management, IFS School of Finance, the London School of Business and Finance, and Regent's College.
 
The other nine are publically-funded universities: Brunel, City, East London, Greenwich, South Bank, Middlesex, Roehampton, West London and Westminster.
 
The clearing house opens this Monday.
 
The judicial review of the UK Border Agency's decision to revoke LMU's licence to recruit international students will be heard on Friday 21 September.
