Sign this e-petition to support an amnesty for international students enrolled at London Met, who unless they find another course within 60 days, face deportation.
Without warning these students have been told that they are unable to continue
at London Metropolitan University, due to management failings in complying with
the Government's 'Points Based Immigration System'.
The petition simply
calls for an amnesty so that they may complete their studies. The reasoning is
that the priorities of the government "taskforce" announced today should aim to
put right the problems at LMU, not merely seek to move students around the UK as
a consequence of the decision to withdraw the University's sponsorship
If there are management failings for which London Met is
responsible, it seems wholly counter to elementary natural justice to deport
some 2,700 international students - which is the inevitable result if they are
unable to find (or accept) university places elsewhere in the UK.
Please sign the petition here, and forward to colleagues:
