Serious issues surrounding the operation of the now closed Millennium College emerged during an investigation by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service, it has emerged this evening.

The college is the fourth English language school in Dublin to close suddenly and unexpectedly in recent weeks.

In a statement, the INIS said that when they contacted the UK body which supposedly accredited the programmes delivered at Millennium, it emerged that no student from there had ever been registered.

That contrasted with the records held by the immigration authorities, which claimed that around 300 students were accredited.

The INIS said they began an investigation arising from serious allegations made against some colleges which offered English language education to students from outside the European Economic Area.

As a result of that the authorities suspended issuing visas and residence permissions to students seeking to enrol at Eden College, National Media College (formerly New Media College), Business and Computer Training Institute and now Millennium College.
This reminds me of the London Met fiasco a couple of years ago.

Would it be a shock to hear that the schools in Ireland have a connection to schools and school owners in UK? There has to be an explanation why EDI accepted their applications for accreditation in Ireland. The same applies to other courses that could be the next scandal in Ireland.

Would you be shocked that several of the school owners had previously had schools in UK?
