London Metropolitan University, who lost their licence to recruit non-EU students, has seen a drop in student numbers a FOI has revealed.

They have lost more than half their number of students.

The BBC write:

So far in this academic year it has less than half the number of new students it had in the previous year, figures obtained by the BBC suggest.
