Private higher education colleges face “devastation” due to international student visa clampdown

According to a report from a policy thinktank, private higher education colleges in the UK face being “devastated” by last year’s government clampdown on overseas students.In a new report, CentreForum calls for the reversal of student visa controls which prohibit international students enrolled on HE courses at private colleges from working part time to support their studies. Since these controls were introduced in 2011, enrolment numbers are estimated to have dropped by around 70%. One private institution, Cavendish College London, has already closed, while others face being taken over by public universities.
