Foreign students 'queue jumping' for Cardiff University places, Daily Telegraph claims

An investigation by the Daily Telegraph claims that an agency in Beijing offered a place to a fictitious Chinese student at Cardiff Business School who had only achieved three C grades at A-level.

Undercover reporters from the paper visited Golden Arrows Consulting (金失留學), which is the official agent for more than 20 British universities, including Cardiff. An applicant would normally need two A grades and a B grade to be considered for a place, but the reporter was told that a place could be secured.

The Daily Telegraph accused universities of rejecting British applicants in favour of foreign students, who pay higher fees.

Cardiff University takes very seriously the issues raised by The Daily Telegraph’s investigation. The alleged practices by the agency Golden Arrow misrepresent the University and Cardiff’s robust admission procedures. As a result, Cardiff University is investigating the allegations

– Cardiff University spokesperson

The University added that the number of international students studying at Cardiff would have no impact on the number of places available to British applicants. UK and EU student numbers are limited by Government quotas and universities are fined if they exceed these quotas.

Chinese agent’s C-grade claim sparks Cardiff probe

Cardiff University is investigating reports that a prospective Chinese student was told by a recruitment agent that she could win a place at the institution despite not meeting its entry requirements.

The Daily Telegraph reports that an agent at Beijing-based Golden Arrow Consulting told undercover reporters posing as representatives of the student that it would be possible to study accounting or economics at Cardiff Business School with three Cs at A level.

The normal entry requirement is AAB, the newspaper said.

The same adviser also told the undercover reporters that the student would be able to study business at the University of Sussex.

A spokeswoman for Cardiff said: “The alleged practices by the agency Golden Arrow misrepresent the university’s robust admission procedures.

“Agents do not make admissions decisions. All decisions on eligibility for courses at Cardiff are taken by the university itself.”

Sussex told the Telegraph that it made “no C, C, C offers whatsoever”.

In a separate statement the university refuted any suggestion that a foreign student was offered place at the institution with A-level grades of CCC, and added that its admissions process for overseas applicants was “rigorous and professional”.

Universities UK has also issued its own response to the story.

Nicola Dandridge, UUK’s chief executive, said: “Universities set entry requirements to courses but may deviate from these in certain circumstances. This would apply to UK, [European Union] and non-EU students.

“Universities will only recruit international students [who] they believe are genuine and are capable of completing the course.”

The Telegraph quoted Richard Cairns, headmaster of Brighton College, as claiming that it is harder for UK students to get into British universities than international students, and that the UK sector is “increasingly searching for, and needing, overseas fees”.

Ms Dandridge added: “International students do not, and cannot, displace home student places. UK student places are capped by government.

“Universities recruit UK students up to those caps. If they exceed their allocation of home students they are fined. Recruitment of international students operates entirely outside these domestic limits.”

Golden Arrow told the Telegraph that it had “never” sent a student to Cardiff with three Cs at A level, but added that lower grades could be accepted through clearing at a number of high-ranking universities.
