Uk College Caught Selling Fake Degrees To Foreign Students by justwise(m): 8:19am On Oct 05, 2011
A scam exposed by BBC Wales in which overseas students are helped to cheat their way to University of Wales-validated degrees and visas is being investigated by the UK Border Agency.

Students are sold diplomas exempting them from work for MBAs, which then entitles them to apply for a UK visa.

Three staff at Rayat London College have been suspended.

The university is to stop validating other institutions' degrees. It would not comment on the scam allegations.

UK Immigration Minister Damian Green said: "It's fraud - it's clearly trying to create and exploit a loophole in the immigration system.

"Obviously we're aware of the investigations that you've been undergoing (at BBC Wales).

The colleges knew their businesses are very much at risk due the the unfavourable immigration rules for students, this must be their own way of protecting their business. grin grin grin

This wasnt a UK university! just a private for profit company parading itself as a college. If you go and check the facts chances are that the school is/was run by one of our African brothers/sisters or not too distant cousins,the Asians.

You are not far from the truth, almost all the bogus colleges in the UK are run by Asians and Africans.
Re: Uk College Caught Selling Fake Degrees To Foreign Students by norrisman: 1:17pm On Oct 05, 2011
The college is run by the Rayat-Bahra Group and the chairman is Nirmal Singh Rayat.

That is true, University of Wales has stopped validating any degree issued by those affiliated colleges around the world.

Many of these random Asian colleges litter the UK. They are just diploma mills to help facilitate immigration. The real question is: how much money did they pay the Univ. of Wales for their "validation"?

No worries bros, please stay away from some of those cheap private colleges owned by Asians and Africans. Public funded colleges are safer.

Re: Uk College Caught Selling Fake Degrees To Foreign Students by Lantean(m): 2:31pm On Oct 05, 2011
I read the news on BBC website and concluded as follows:

With no intent to be judgmental, the Registrar wasn't being COMPLETELY honest with the[b] TRUTH[/b]
We are given TOO MUCH credit for scams.  sad
You'll all be surprised to know your white poeple are not true saints.
And we Africans aren't all "bad".  smiley

Sadly, the Nigerian media is not keen on reporting the piece - Cos it's not related to NIGERIA  angry angry

Nor do other African countries want to make news of it because it's not about their LOATHED African brother. angry

I'm Just glad all through the piece, Fatherland wasn't mentioned. smiley Thumbs Up  cheesy

Before you start criticizing crap, go to the news source and read through.
You've never been to an obodo oyibo university, how do you then know that they pass by cheating.

I have been to one and I can tell you that Oyibo universities are far better than the Nigerian ones and its very rare before a cheat can scale through the academic system.

Does this mean that a foreign Uni student is better than the Local ones ?? My answer is no, if a local student is given the same opportunity and uni facilities as his Oyibo counterpart, he/she would do very well, After all, was it not we Nigerians, Indians and Chinese that were topping the class (excuse my grammar) during the Masters Programme

Sagamite probably got his degree from that school, no wonder he is so demented and retardeddd and mor/onic
Re: Uk College Caught Selling Fake Degrees To Foreign Students by OmoTier1(m): 2:58pm On Oct 05, 2011
This news came out few weeks back!And just wait in no longer time another Historian will claim 'the blacks' brought corruption to the UK

@jubi,
Please do not start! please do not compare graduates from Nigeria with those who schooled in the UK. No offense! When  I was doing my post graduate some years ago, I was ashamed when I met fellow Nigerians who came over to do thier Masters' degree could not even operate a computer and another did not how to use online tools to access research journal articles.

I have always said it.Any Nigerian who decides to go study in a college in the UK is wasting his/her time and money. UK colleges are not more worth polytechnics in Nigeria.
Re: Uk College Caught Selling Fake Degrees To Foreign Students by Konjour(m): 3:04pm On Oct 05, 2011
The college looks like Its run by Asians. I'm sure there are a lot of colleges like that in the UK,perhaps their own bubbles are not opportuned to

blow yet. The last one i heard about was about a Nigerian Septuagenarian and his sixty-something year old wife being accused of something

similar to this. Don't know how it all ended up though,but i think such occurrences are only going to make the scrutiny of foreign students

further complicated.
