Some colleges, although meeting the criteria of an accredited college may not be listed on the relevant websites and the UK Border Agency ['UKBA'] may then refuse the application. To get around this colleges are advised to use the new UKBA template letter and demonstrate how they meet the definition of an 'accredited college'.
