University VCs warn that may be forced to close some courses

According to a news report, vice chancellors of 16 UK universities have voiced concern at the new visa restriction proposals and have warned "they may be forced to close some courses unless the Government drops plans to limit UK visas for foreign students".

"International students coming to universities contribute over £5bn each year to the UK economy through tuition fees and off-campus expenditure".

Closing the courses would mean less students and even having to let staff go.
