Only one in 1,000 suspected bogus students are deported, a Freedom of Information request has revealed. 

The Telegraph report:

Last year, universities reported 106,698 cases where they suspected a foreign student was misusing their visa but only 153 ended in the suspect being deported.

Of the 106,000 reported cases, the UK Border Agency only investigated 658 individuals, it was found.

The figures, released under a Freedom of Information request, come following Home Office pressure to clamp down on bogus students entering Britain.
