Hmm I wonder who gave you this info?
Do you know the fees international students have to pay here in the UK? FYI they pay 3-4 times the amount of what an average UK citizen would pay.
Hell unis love international students, that's where they get all their from lol, but the competition is just as high as it is for a UK student if not more. To get in to a decent uni in the UK, one that is actually known well back home is veryyy difficult! The IB score system is very competitive and very tough for students to get great grades to come to unis like UCL, LSE etc. (who have one of the highest international students rates-majority are from china and india
Now if it's just about people coming from India and saying we studied at London (although at crappy unis lol) then that's another matter lol cos there are a lot of people like that. But I hope you realise that no matter what uni they study at they still have to pay international fees of usually around 10,000! =|
I don't know if this was on the news or anything but a friend of mine was telling me how she has a cousin at LSE university. (It is one of the top 5 unis for social science studies in the whole of UK) She said there were a group of boys who had come from Delhi and in order to pay off the money for uni tuition fees, they sold ALL of their land in India, sold whatever expensive jewellery they owned in order to graduate from a respectable uni. Wanna know what happened? They couldn't pass their degree and failed. This led to the group of boys committing suicide.
Due to the amount of Asians wanting to 'study abroad', there are soooooo many fake colleges/unis that have opened up that award immigrants with 'fake certificates' and 'fake degrees and qualifications'. It's like you're passing the "uni" and all you see are a group of immigrant middle aged men who think they're studying at a qualified uni when they really aren't. If anyone wants to look it up, then this was on BBC news a while ago where a Pakistani man talks about how he was conned in this whole so-called education system.
