Home > London Metropolitan University (LMU) task force
The task force held its final meeting on 15 October. The university and the UK Border Agency are working to resolve any residual issues for students, and HEFCE continues to administer the fund that was established in September 2012 to support students affected by the revocation. More information on the fund is below. For queries about the task force, please contact Liz McCarty.
If you are an international London Metropolitan University student or applicant with full and proper immigration status at the time of the revocation, and you have been financially affected by the UK Border Agency’s decision to revoke London Metropolitan University’s licence to sponsor international students, you can apply to the Fund.
You will need to show that you have sustained additional costs as a direct result of the revocation.
The fund covers three areas:
Below are a list of frequently asked questions and an application form. Applications must be received by 31 October 2012. We will exceptionally consider applications received after this date.
Don’t forget that if you need academic advice, counselling or technical assistance with the online clearing house process or with your re-enrolment at London Metropolitan University, you can contact the London Metropolitan University Help Centre on 0207 133 4141, e-mail email@example.com, or stop by the walk-in centre at the Holloway Road campus on the 3rd Floor Tower Building.
UK Border Agency staff are on site at the University to provide advice via the helpline and student support team. The UK Border Agency Contact Centre number is 0870 606 7766.
When you submit an application to the fund, we will use the personal information you provide on the application form to process your claim. As part of this process your information may be shared with other organisations (London Metropolitan University, the UK Border Agency, and, if you are moving from London Metropolitan University, your new institution) in order to verify the details you have given. We may also use information provided by you to London Metropolitan University as necessary to process your claim.
We will make sure that we keep your information securely, and we will destroy it once the process is complete.
