Private college GSM London goes bust and will stop teaching

GSM London, one of the biggest private higher education providers in England, has gone into administration - and will stop teaching students in September.

The college says it has not been able to "recruit and retain sufficient numbers of students to generate enough revenue to be sustainable".

It teaches about 3,500 students - with degree courses validated by the University of Plymouth.

A statement from GSM London says that "discussions are under way with other higher education providers to identify alternative courses for our students and we will be supporting them in the application process".

The college says it could not remain financially viable and had been unable to find a buyer to ensure its "longer-term future".

It says it will teach until September - which for some courses will be the end of term - ahead of an "orderly wind-down and closure of the college".
