To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many foreign students at schools and colleges that have lost their right to sponsor such students were removed from the UK in each of the last four years.

Immigration removal statistics do not capture the category in which those

removed originally came to the UK. Since 2010, UK Visas and Immigration have

removed more than 860 education institutions from the register of those

licensed to recruit international students to the UK. Students whose sponsors’

licence has been revoked must find a new licensed sponsor or leave the UK

within 60 days of notification.
