HC Deb 19 March 1987 vol 112 c562W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take steps to draw to the attention of overseas students seeking to study for degrees in the United Kingdom a list of institutions offering approved courses of study and certified degrees.

Mr. Walden

My right hon. Friend is considering the possibility of legislation to curb bogus degrees. The British Council is able to offer prospective students information on universities and institutions authorised to award degrees in the United Kingdom by Royal Charter or Act of Parliament.
