UK sets up fund for non-EU students
Britain on Thursday announced a new fund of 2 million pounds to help Indian and other non-EU students caught by the revocation of London Metropolitan University's licence to admit and teach international students.

LMU's licence was revoked on 29 August, throwing the academic future of over 350 Indian and over 2,250 other non-EU current students in disarray. After the licence revocation, they are required to apply for similar courses in other universities and reapply for student visas. Universities minister David Willetts told a conference of Universities UK that the 2 million pounds fund was intended to ‘to help legitimate overseas students at London Met who face extra costs through no fault of their own’.

The money will be used to help with the costs of students transferring to other universities and to make new visa applications.
