“Teesside University takes pride in its global diversity but must adhere to visa issuance and compliance requirements.

“These stringent external regulations are designed to support a robust immigration system and are beyond the university’s control,” said a university spokesperson, as quoted by the BBC.

The university claimed it had “no option” since non-payment of fees violated visa sponsorship conditions. It emphasized its efforts to assist the affected students, including offering customized payment plans.

However, numerous students who protested on Tuesday accused the university of being “heartless” and unjust.

Adenike Ibrahim shared with the BBC that she was close to submitting her dissertation when she was removed from her course due to missed payments.

Although she has now paid her fees in full, she and her young son must leave the UK and she cannot re-enroll.

“I did miss some payments, but I had already paid 90 percent of my tuition fees and attended all my classes,” she told the BBC. “I reached out to negotiate, but the university didn’t care about the students’ situations.”

Responding to the situation, the Home Office stated that the authority to grant or revoke visa sponsorship lies with the sponsoring institution.

It added that individuals whose visas are shortened or canceled must “regularize their stay or arrange to leave the UK.”

In a letter, the Home Office informed the students they had no right to appeal.
