Bogus colleges probed

More than 100 colleges in England and Wales are being investigated by police after being exposed as bogus institutions acting as a front for an immigration scam, the Home Office said this week. The news follows a probe by immigration officers into 400 colleges as part of a crackdown on abuse of student visas. A register of all genuine education providers is to be set up by the Department for Education and Skills by the end of the year.
