British universities stop recruiting students from SL!
Students who have applied for visas to study in the UK claim that British universities have stopped recruiting students from Sri Lanka.
The University of South Wales has announced in a statement that it has stopped accepting applications from Sri Lankan students for new batches starting in September 2022.
This situation has arisen due to the current difficulties Sri Lanka is facing and the foreign exchange restrictions.
The announcement also states that many Sri Lankan students currently studying at the University of South Wales have failed to pay their course fees on time.
As a result, the University of South Wales has pointed out that these students are facing the risk of being removed from the course, and that there is a risk of filing a complaint against those students at the British Visa and Immigration Office.
The University of South Wales has stated that the university as well as the students will have to face serious problems.
The University of South Wales has informed that students whose application has already been approved must submit a clear plan on how they will pay the remaining course fees.
The University of South Wales also claims that students who have already paid 50 per cent of the fees in advance will be refunded if they feel they are unable to pay the remaining amount.
The University of South Wales has stated that Sri Lankan students can apply for the January-February 2023 batch but must pay the full course fee at the time of admission.
