Illegal Student Visas

Whistle Blowers was recently contacted by an individual who claims that some private colleges are abusing the student visa system by falsifying records in order to allow students who are not in compliance with the terms of their visa to stay in the country longer. They charge anywhere between £4,600-£6,000 for this service and call it ‘tuition.’ Students may not even attend the school, as they live in different cities, but the college will create records and back date them to make it appear as if the student has been there the whole time.

Private colleges remain largely unregulated and tend to attract international students who are willing to pay a lot of money to go to school here. While most students are following the terms of their visas, there appears to be some who are who are not and are buying their way through the system. Do you know anything about this practice? We would like to hear more about it if you do.
