West Midlands college has international students license revoked

The UK Border Agency has cancelled the international student visa license of a West Midlands college.

Bilston Community College in Wolverhampton had its 'Highly Trusted Status' revoked with effect from October 26th, leaving scores of international students ineligible to study there.

Border Agency officials say the college was "not fulfilling its duties".

Kuldeep Singh, from the college, which is currently closed for half term, told the BBC all students had been informed of the situation.

Phil Page, a Wolverhampton city councillor for Bilston North, who also acts as a director for the college, said he had been told the college was appealing against the decision.

To qualify for "highly-trusted" status, a college has to ensure students attend classes regularly, that its teaching is of sufficient quality, and that it adheres to a range of other factors.

The college, which has been running since 2008, describes itself on its website as "an independent college of education which specialises in a range of vocational and professional courses in business, management, hospitality and IT".

It says international students account for more than 60% of its students.
