Abingdon & Witney College loses 'highly trusted sponsor' status
8:42pm Wednesday 20th June 2012 in Education
Abingdon & Witney College has lost its “highly trusted sponsor” status following an investigation by the UK Border Agency.
Principal Teresa Kelly blamed a technical breach of Home Office rules.
When officials find discrepancies with a third of foreign students enrolled at a college, they can remove the endorsement.
As Abingdon & Witney had just three students from outside the European Union, it meant a problem with one led to the removal.
