    This is the most bizarre form of cheating. If you're going to cheat to get onto a degree course you have no hope of passing, then why not just buy a fake degree instead? Surely they can't imagine that the English on the course itself will be easier? The only reason I can think of to do this is if the student visa is just a cover for illegal immigration.

    I am not sure- maybe there will be further cheating when on the course.
