I'm Dr Annie, FGV may want to hire me (Updated -thrice)

UPDATED 3

Apparently this posting of mine had drawn quite a lot of attention.

I had among others received an email from Dr Brenden Tempest-Mogg, the president of Warnborough College (UK) over the matter. Unlike his former students, the guy seems to be a cool fellow.

He had given me permission to republish this clarification about his establishment which was originally intended for The Star newspaper,

Re: WARNBOROUGH COLLEGE (Ireland)

We are concerned about the misinformation presented about Warnborough College  (Ireland) that has appeared in your newspaper The Star on 17 July 2013 in the article entitled "Spotlight on Emir". 
Warnborough College (Ireland) is entitled to award degrees, based on comparable academic standards similar to major universities.  To this end, Warnborough College has been accredited by the Accreditation Service for International Colleges (ASIC)  as a Premier College, after performing commendably in the intensive accreditation process. Also, it holds ISO9001:2008 certification, like several universities in Malaysia and abroad. Our qualifications are recognised in industry, commerce, education and the professions. Its membership in the UK College of Teachers (Royal Chartered in 1849) further illustrates its commitment to quality teaching, research and professional standards.

Our alumni consist of many worthy graduates including Dr Mohd Emir Mavani Abdullah. They worked hard to earn their qualifications, undergoing a rigorous academic and examination regime. They are and have every right to be proud of their Warnborough qualifications and the contribution they are making in all walks of life.  

Our accreditation is stated very clearly on our website www.warnborough.ie , and this can be verified directly with ASICwww.asic.org.uk  We are requesting  a correction to the article so that the information provided by The Star is accurate.

Thank you.

UPDATES 2

Apparently, Dr Ranjit Singh Malhi was not satisfied with my apology for making him angry over this posting. He had send me two more emails, castigating me for this posting. Well, honestly, I don't really know what else to say. Apparently graduates of Wamborough University (or is it College?) are not very humorous people.

I wish I can share those emails here so that readers of this blog may understand how seriously offended he was, but since he had marked them PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL, I decided to honor it  by refraining from doing so.

UPDATES

Apparently, this posting of mine had attracted quite a hostile reaction from one Dr Ranjit Singh Malhi.

These are his emails,

I refer to your posting, “I’m Dr Annie, FGV may want to hire me” of 22 July 2013.

You have openly stated that Dr. Emir Mavani’s qualifications are fake and implied that Warnborough University (now known as Warnborough College Ireland -WCI) is a bogus institution. Your completely erroneous and defamatory statement is far more worse than that of The Star.

Attached is the Accreditation Service for International Colleges (ASIC) Certificate of Accreditation for WCI. ASIC is an independent body which provides an accreditation service for independent further and higher education colleges. ASIC is an independent British-based accreditation agency which currently accredits a number of educational institutions in the UK, Asia, and in other parts of the world. ASIC extends accreditation to schools, colleges, universities and training institutions which satisfy a range of stringent quality criteria in all aspects of their operations. Well-known academic institutions that have been accredited includes London International College of Management, University of Atlanta (USA), ASIA Metropolitan University (Malaysia), Institut Europèen des Affaires (France) and Amity Global Business School (Singapore). ASIC is a member of CHEA International Quality Group (CIQG) in USA and is listed in their International Directory and has recently been accepted by the British Quality Foundation (BQF).

Attached also is the documentation proving that WCI’s graduates have held academic positions with well-established universities and ASIC’s accreditation obtained by Management and Science University (Malaysia).

I did my Ph.D. in Organizational Behaviour with Warnborough University and I am utterly pissed off with your completely erroneous and derogatory insinuation about WCI.

I strongly demand an apology from you for your erroneous and derogatory insinuation that Warnborough University is a bogus institution and removing the offending posting within 24 hours.  If I do not receive a favourable response from you within 24 hoursI will most definitely (100%) initiate legal proceedings against you. You have my word of honour on that.

For the record, I sued an individual (Malaysian) in 2010 for defamation in the High Court who erroneously accused me of buying my Ph.D. degree. The matter was settled out of court with him issuing me an apology letter and making a payment (amount is private and confidential). I am sure you do not want History to repeat itself. The ball is in your court, “Dr Annie” and I would most definitely not want to hire someone like you who slander others without first verifying your facts.

Well, Dear Dr Ranjit Singh Malhi
I'm actually very sorry that you took serious offense of this little posting of mine.
I sincerely do not know who you are, but please believe me that this posting was only meant for a laugh or two. I did it on the spur of the moment after reading about the subject matter in other blogs. I hope you could understand and forgive me for it and not be too vexed with me.

Dr Ranjit Singh Malhi, since you took the trouble to write to me to express your indignation about this posting, as a sign of appreciation, I would like to dedicate this little sketch to you so that it may cheer you up a bit. Cheers. (Note: I believe God can forgive Mr Atkinson and can see that the sketch was just for fun.)


ORIGINAL POSTING

Why the doctor?

Because I can fake it.

Yes, for the purpose of this posting you all can refer to me as Dr Annie.

Nice isn't it.

Hmmm, let me tell you that I actually obtained my Phd in philosophy and anthropology from University of Middlesex, UK. (Note: Go search for the university and see if you can find it).

Oh, by the way, I also have a law degree from another UK university, you know.

And as proof of the authenticity of my doctorate and stupendous academic achievements, here is my photo on my graduation day which goes with my CV,


Well, hot and intellectually impressive aren't I?

Now, which gigantic GLC wants to hire me as its president and CEO?

How about you all at Felda Global Venture?

Hey, come on la, just dump this guy,


and replace him with me.

What?

My qualification were fakes?

Well, so does the qualification of that ugly guy you all appointed as your president and CEO, isn't it?

At least I'm nicer to look at, aren't I?

What?

That picture of mine is fake too?

Well, even if I put my real picture, I am certain I'm still nicer to look at than that ugly bald man.

Tan Sri Isa Samad, what do you think? You want to hire me or not?

(Note: For perspective, read Warnborough, revisited (possibly with a lawyer letter)

  3. I was told about an internal seminar/meeting with FGV's top executives.One goes to these kind of company do and since it was held in a resort some brought along their spouses and there will be of course dinners and so on organized. But at the close door seminar the spouses were supposed to be out of bounds. In one FGV not only was the spouse ie the wife was there, she participated and asked questions as though she was a participant.
    The other senior executives were clearly pissed off but since it was the CEO's wife nobody dared to say anything out
    There is a story that a large GLC down south whose wife, supposedly to keep herself with the husbands busy and many official, semi official activities been assigned a paid PA, an officer , of the Corp.to help, like a good and busy executive all the affairs and arranged for the wifes programme but also to look after their teenage children

    1. Anon 11:19 I hope you post that comment in jest.

      Whether one go to heaven or hell, it entirely on the discretion of Allah. No human, not even Rasulullah SAW, can determine that.

      Do not make a joke of that, regardless what PAS said, which is pure and unadulterated rubbish.

      Delete
    2. Yes, I am serious, no joke no jest, its indeed true. I have heard Nik Aziz said so esp during last GE13 and many Malays esp the Malays in urban areas, the educated ones and those who benefitted from UMNO's policies like the NEP and who work in large GLC's and the successful Govt traders and contractors all agree to the statement.
      Thats why they voted for PAS and also the allied candidates either DAP and esp Malay PKR candidates esp in KL and Klang Valley /Selangor seats
      Because the great brilliant leader in none other than Nik Aziz , the spiritual guru, de facto leader of PAS and you know PAS is a major partner of the Fuckatoon coalition
      How come these educated urban Malays do not believe in pure and unadulterated rubbish then?.All want to enter Syurga (heaven ) kan?

      Delete
    3. Many of those who sides with PAS or PKR are not really their die hard supporters of, they are just fed up with UMNO antics.

      They do not believe in what Nik Aziz said about ticket to Jannah, neither do they believe the many PAS celebrity Ostazs. In fact I doubt any of the PAS top echelons believe in that. Only Nik Aziz and a few machai actually said that.

      But they were exposed to other view of Islam apart from the official JAKIM or Menteri di JPM version of it. They know what is right or what is wrong. Th fact is that UMNO's version of Islam (development, etc) is no longer appetizing.

  16. Extract from Wikipedia.

    1997-2005: London and Canterbury

    In 1997 Warnborough University was registered as a limited company in Ireland, directed by Brenden Tempest-Mogg and Kee Guan Ng, a Malaysian national[1] and registered a branch office in the United Kingdom. It initially operated an office in London and later moved to Canterbury in 2001. It offered graduate and undergraduate residential and non-residential degrees in liberal arts, scientific and professional studies.[18] In November 2005 the Department of Education and Science said that Warnborough University in Ireland was in breach of the Universities Act 1997 by calling itself a university and requested that they not use the word "university" to describe themselves.[19]

    In the early 2000s Warnborough University generated controversy by issuing graduate and undergraduate degrees in Australia because neither Warnborough nor any of its consortium partners through which it was offering degrees were authorised or accredited to do so.[20][21] The Australian state of New South Wales included Warnborough on a list of five “unrecognized universities”.[22]

    The Oregon Office of Degree Authorization, in its listing of unaccredited universities, comments in its notes about Warnborough (under the former name of Warnborough University): "Also (known as) Warnborough College. 'Warnborough University is not a recognized institution in Ireland' - National Qualifications Authority of Ireland 'Not a UK degree-granter. Appearance on UK registry of training providers does not confer or represent authorization to issue degrees' - British Higher Education Governance office. [23] Alan Contreras, former administrator of the Oregon Office of Degree Authorization, characterised Warnborough College as "a diploma mill that has managed to move back and forth between Britain and Ireland for decades without either government's being able to put an end to it."[24][25] On its website, Warnborough College Ireland claims that its degrees are legal even though not accredited.[26]

    1. This is misleading. Warnborough has never claimed to award UK degrees. In fact, the ODA has a history of being sued for promoting false information, most of it done by a former Director. Wikipedia is a very unreliable source of information and that is why colleges and universities warn their students not to use it. Anyhow, Oregon has no status in any education circles. It is famous for making matches!

There are people around the local universities who for an agreed fees can write your thesis, your dissertation plus making fake surveys and response format Also include printing and binding plus everything. The arrangement are recommended by the lecturers and the prof. The practice of getting others to attend your degree on your behalf is also widely done , esp the on line degree programme.

  22. Perhaps Dr Ranjits may want to sue "The Independent" over Wankerburit Universitas.

    College charges €18,000 fees for 'useless' degrees

    Warnborough College in All Hallows, Dublin
    SHANE PHELAN AND JOHN WALSHE – 15 FEBRUARY 2008

    A COLLEGE run by foreign businessmen has been accused of offering effectively "worthless" degrees and doctorates from the grounds of a prestigious third-level institution.

    The self-styled Warnborough College is charging up to €18,000 in fees for unrecognised qualifications after renting offices at All Hallows College in Drumcondra, Dublin.

    Following inquiries from the Irish Independent, All Hallows confirmed it will not be renewing its rental arrangement with Warnborough.

    Using a slick website, Warnborough runs a so-called "distance learning" college where students from all over the world are offered course work over the internet.

    Until recently the website included a photograph of All Hallows and made references to graduation ceremonies and seminars that were due to take place there.

    However, the Irish Independent has established that the courses offered by Warnborough College are not recognised by the Department of Education.

    The courses are also not recognised by the Higher Education and Training Awards Council (HETAC) and the National Qualifications Authority of Ireland (NQAI), which described the qualifications on offer as effectively "worthless".

    Neither is Warnborough College, which also has offices in Canterbury in Kent, recognised by the UK Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills as an institution with the power to award its own degrees.

    Education chiefs are furious Warnborough College has linked itself to All Hallows, whose degrees are validated by Dublin City University.

    All Hallows last night said it was concerned about the presence of Warnborough College on its grounds.

    It confirmed it would not be renewing its rental agreement with the college.

    Since last July, Warnborough College has rented offices at All Hallows. Prior to that, it had offices above a pub in Bray.

    But despite this, the head of Warnborough last night said claims it had tried to link itself to All Hallows were "ludicrous".

  23. ASIC's "accreditation" is not quite what most readers of this forum define as such. It does not lend ANY standing to a school's degrees, or -of itself- make it legitimate for the school to offer them.

    ASIC started life reporting on British schools enrolling foreign students. It reported to the UK Border Agency and its accreditation primarily ensured that there were "real" classes, the schools were not hives of terrorists or undesirables and were not involved in illegal foreign labour scams or immigration-related chicanery.

    Most of the schools it reported on were not degree-granting. A relative few were, but ASIC's seal of approval had nothing to do with degree-granting authority. Since then, ASIC seems to have morphed into a company that markets its services in many countries and people seem to view it as "accreditation" in the sense that degrees of ASIC-accredited schools will have the same standing as the mainstream schools.

    As far as Warnborough College and Warnborough University go: The College doesn't offer degrees - it can't. The University shouldn't. It relocated in Ireland some time ago and it has neither Irish or UK authority to grant degrees. Both schools have been much cussed and discussed in the various degree-fora.

    1. Machar,

      ASIC's "accreditation" is not quite what most readers of this forum define as such. It does not lend ANY standing to a school's degrees, or -of itself- make it legitimate for the school to offer them.

      ASIC started life reporting on British schools enrolling foreign students. It reported to the UK Border Agency and its accreditation primarily ensured that there were "real" classes, the schools were not hives of terrorists or undesirables and were not involved in illegal foreign labour scams or immigration-related chicanery.

      Most of the schools it reported on were not degree-granting. A relative few were, but ASIC's seal of approval had nothing to do with degree-granting authority. Since then, ASIC seems to have morphed into a company that markets its services in many countries and people seem to view it as "accreditation" in the sense that degrees of ASIC-accredited schools will have the same standing as the mainstream schools. This is simply not so at all.

      Interestingly, one (count 'em) school in the US displays ASIC accreditation: The University of Atlanta. This school had DETC accreditation for five years. It expires in 2013 and the school has been on a "teach-out" basis for a while.

    Can you please ask Dr Ranjit to verify this newspaper article I copy from Another Brick blog.

    SHANE PHELAN AND JOHN WALSHE
    Independent.ie
    15 FEBRUARY 2008

    A COLLEGE run by foreign businessmen has been accused of offering effectively "worthless" degrees and doctorates from the grounds of a prestigious third-level institution.

    The self-styled Warnborough College is charging up to €18,000 in fees for unrecognised qualifications after renting offices at All Hallows College in Drumcondra, Dublin.

    Following inquiries from the Irish Independent, All Hallows confirmed it will not be renewing its rental arrangement with Warnborough.

    Using a slick website, Warnborough runs a so-called "distance learning" college where students from all over the world are offered course work over the internet.

    Until recently the website included a photograph of All Hallows and made references to graduation ceremonies and seminars that were due to take place there.

    However, the Irish Independent has established that the courses offered by Warnborough College are not recognised by the Department of Education.

    The courses are also not recognised by the Higher Education and Training Awards Council (HETAC) and the National Qualifications Authority of Ireland (NQAI), which described the qualifications on offer as effectively "worthless".

    Neither is Warnborough College, which also has offices in Canterbury in Kent, recognised by the UK Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills as an institution with the power to award its own degrees.

    Education chiefs are furious Warnborough College has linked itself to All Hallows, whose degrees are validated by Dublin City University.

    All Hallows last night said it was concerned about the presence of Warnborough College on its grounds.

    It confirmed it would not be renewing its rental agreement with the college.

    Since last July, Warnborough College has rented offices at All Hallows. Prior to that, it had offices above a pub in Bray.

    But despite this, the head of Warnborough last night said claims it had tried to link itself to All Hallows were "ludicrous".

    I did my learning up to postgraduate at local public uni.. so no hush2 for such accreditation checking! Prestige some more.

He is understandably upset because you have implied that Warnborough College Ireland is a fake institution. Indeed now, its President, Dr. Brenden has clarified the correct status of the college.I too would be extremely upset if someone accuses me of being a holder of a bogus Ph.D. degree. Just give an unqualified apology and I strongly believe that Ranjit will accept it with an open heart.

  49. Dear Friends in Malaysia,

    This is extracted from the UK Government website at https://www.gov.uk/recognised-uk-degrees
    The UK authorities recognise those institutions which have been granted degree-awarding powers by either:
    1. a Royal Charter, or
    2. Act of Parliament or
    3. the Privy Council.
    These are known as ‘recognised bodies’. All UK universities and some higher education colleges are recognised bodies.

    My comment: Clearly, Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges & universities (ASIC) is not one of the above “recognized bodies”.

    In the UK, it is illegal to offer a qualification that is or might seem to be a UK degree unless the awarding body is recognised by the Secretary of State, a Royal Charter or Act of Parliament to grant degrees.[27] Prosecutions under the Education Reform Act are rare, as many unaccredited awarding bodies are based outside UK jurisdiction. It is also worth noting in this context that the Business Names Act 1985 made it an offence for any business in the UK to use the word "UNIVERSITY" in its name without the formal approval of the Privy Council.

    My comment: That explains the confusion between "Warnborough University" or "Warnborough College". Obviously, they've changed the name from "University" to "College" to avoid any legal suit in the UK.

    Private higher (HE) and further education (FE) institutions (here distinguished from the qualifications that they offer) are unregulated, but may choose to become accredited by various non-regulatory bodies such as the British Accreditation Council or the British Council and Accreditation Service for International Colleges in order to demonstrate third-party assessment of the quality of education they offer.

    My comment: BAC or BC or ASIF can only assess the quality of education that the insitutions offers (that's all) and certainly, they do not have the awarding powers to recognize UK institution. And that is a FACT!

    For the OFFICIAL full list of recognized UK degrees, please refer to https://www.gov.uk/recognised-uk-degrees-recognised-bodies (for statutory instrument, you can download from http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2010/2618/pdfs/uksi_20102618_en.pdf)

    Other institutions, which do not have the power to award their own degrees, may provide full courses which lead to a degree of a recognised body. These are known as ‘listed bodies’. All the degrees awarded by UK-recognised bodies at their own institution or through listed bodies are recognised degrees. For full list of these insitutions, please refer to https://www.gov.uk/recognised-uk-degrees-listed-bodies
    My comment: In both lists, you will not find “WARNBOROUGH UNIVERSITY” or “WARNBOROUGH COLLEGE” or “WANKERBURIT INSTITUTION”

    Let's focus on the issue that has landed "Annie" (I have got her real identity from friendly sources) in serious trouble and a definite lawsuit from me if she does not give me an unreserved apology by this morning. She has erroneously insinuated that Warnborough College (Ireland) is a fake or dubious institution. The real facts are that WCI is a private educational institution operating legally in Ireland and is entitled to award degrees. On 18 December 2012 it was accredited by ASIC as a "Premier College" having met stringent requirements and attained commendable grades in six areas including Learning and Teaching;Course Delivery and Quality Assurance and Enhancement. Hence, it is crystal-clear that WCI is not a degree mill or a fake institution selling degrees. This explains why I am extremely upset (and rightly so) with people like "Annie" who slander others without verifying the facts. For the record, I spoke to Rocky Bru whom I know personally and informed him that WCI is an accredited institution due to the fact that it is accredited by ASIC, an independent British-based accreditation agency which accredits educational institutions in the UK, Asia, and in the other parts of the world. Lately, the British Embassy in Bangkok is supporting ASIC on university accreditation in Thailand in preparation for ASEAN economic integration in 2015. Indeed, three universities and three colleges in Malaysia have sought and received ASIC's accreditation. That itself speaks volume about ASIC's credibility and international recognition. I rest my case, my dear "Annie". What I do admire about you is that you always post my comments in your blog without censoring. Finally, I did tell Rocky Bru that I would have sued him if I did not know him personally. You can check it out with him. Remember, I fear none except the Great Architect of the Universe. All you have to do to end this matter is to give me a sincere and unqualified apology (need not be published) and you have my word of honour that I will forgive you and not proceed with the legal suit. None of us are perfect. Salam.

    1. Encik, kalau encik nak take legal action against Annie, just go ahead lah. Sudah 24 jam. Berapa kali mahu bagi warning? Penat lah tunggu encik. Also, why pilih kasih? You will not sue Rocky Bru because you knew him? How about other bloggers like BigDog, TheVoice, ... ? C'mon, with your PHD from the most renowed university (or is it college?) in UK, you need to show some consistency here.

    2. Yes la Dr Ranjit where la your suit?
      If you take legal action I'm sure Rocky and his band of bloggers will rally behind Annie and give her all their support .
      And many more ..
      Just look at the commentors here you can see that many are among academics, professionals and ordinary people supporting free speach... we are all behind her..
      Whether she wins or lose in court does not matter.
      Annie had won the moral battle against you.

    7. Of course Dr. Ranjit Singh is offended, who wouldn't be with all this misleading information, gossip and innuendo. I can see no evidence on the Warnborough websites where a degree can be purchased. All students work with top mentors, and degrees take years to acquire, and all research is examined externally. Not sure if bloggers here have ever looked at the Warnborough websites!!!!!

  55. In response to Dr Ranjit Malhi Singh critique of the history syllabus in our schools. Professor Ramlah Adam came up with a response:

    KUALA LUMPUR, April 10 — Secondary school history textbooks seem too Islamic and Malay-centric because non-Malays fail to understand Malaysia’s history, Malay rights group Perkasa asserted today.

    Perkasa leadership council member Datin Paduka Professor Dr Ramlah Adam flayed historian Dr Ranjit Malhi Singh today for saying that the current history syllabus had downplayed the contributions of non-Malays and other religions in the country’s history.
    “The non-Malays do not understand this because they do not want to accept the concept of Malay supremacy (ketuanan melayu),” Ramlah told reporters here.

    Ramlah, who is also a historian and the author of the Form 3 and Form 5 history textbooks, insisted that there is “nothing wrong” with the current history syllabus for secondary schools.

    “The history syllabus is well-balanced … we don’t talk or put in negative issues that have happened, we take in the positive (parts).
    “What do you want to be put in? About how the contributions of the non-Malays are in the form of the Malayan communist party?

    “We do not emphasise May 13 even. It is negative … we only put in one line, the important thing is that we must maintain racial harmony and patriotism,” she stressed.

    Ranjit, who was the author of history textbooks until 1996, believes that “scant attention” has been paid to the efforts of the Chinese and Indians in the development of the nation.

    He has also charged that there are too many “half-truths and factual errors” in the current syllabus, and that it is laden with “value judgments.”

    But Ramlah said the reason for the emphasis on Malays and Islam was because the Malays were recognised by the British as the original inhabitants of the land.

    She also said that historical records showed that various agreements were done and signed by the British and Malay rulers, and not any other race.

    Ramlah pointed out that the parties which signed the 1957 Merdeka agreement and the agreement for the formation of Malaysia in 1963 were also the Malay Rulers.

    “We are not discriminating, we are following what has been clearly recorded in history.

    “The non-Malays, they came to this country, contributed as either investors or labourers (kuli),” she added.

    The Perkasa leader went to great lengths to explain that the contributions of the non-Malays have been mentioned in the history textbooks — the late Tun Tan Cheng Lock and Tun H.S Lee, for example, were duly recognised for their efforts in shaping Malaysia.

    “Ranjit was talking about how Yap Ah Loy was not recognised ... well, he did not form Kuala Lumpur, that’s why he’s not mentioned.

    “Ranjit himself was called by the government, along with Tan Sri Professor Dr Khoo Kay Kim, to check the syllabus … he signed it and got paid. There was no complaint then,” Ramlah claimed.

    Ranjit had lamented the fact that non-Malay leaders like Yap Ah Loy were not duly recognised in the history textbooks.

    Ramlah admitted, however, that the Form 4 history syllabus had placed a lot of emphasis on Islamic civilisation, and that the government was working to revamp the current module.

    “The government is already looking into it, so why is he complaining? Ranjit is a consultant. I do not know what his motives are … we cannot afford to fool around with history, we must make sure it is accurately represented,” she added.

    Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali said the spate of complaints urging a revamp of the history textbooks showed that the “minorities” in the country were too demanding in wanting to assert their “rights.”
    “Islam is the religion of the country, Malays are the majority ... its simple,” he said today

  56. Ramjit turns out to be a pr supporter. He got a fake PHD which stands for Pusat Hasad Dengki aka DAP.

    Do you know that the majority Malaysian Chinese are the descendants of the union between coolies and comfort women? If you don't believe, read RPK 's blog. The coolies were brought by the British to work in tin mines and these coolies brought along loose women from China to comfort them at night and the products of their unions are the Malaysian Chinese of today. Small wonder we have characters like Alvivi, mentally retarded Iguana Eng, holier than God Hannah banana Yeoh, just to name a few.

  58. When we were in school, we always aspire to get into well recognised university so that we can get good job. Those were the days when integrity matters most.

    When we get through those hard days, we found that we have to slaved for third graders who can talk, became insurance salesman, enter politic and the rise to the top.

    So, lesson learnt was that, why bother with burning the midnight candles to achieve academic excellence? Stellar qualifications will only get you to be a professor who had to teach policies dictated by the third graders.

    I don't think this Ranjit bugger has the balls to sue you. Anyway, he got a fake PhD to begin with and I don't think he is that stupid to produce it in court. We also better ask LGE whether he got a fake CPA judging from his inability to count!

  64. A bit of HISstory for you all.

    Embarrassment at DFES over official college list

    1 April 2005


    An official list of "genuine" universities and colleges in the UK contains a number of businesses without recognised accreditation, an investigation by The Times Higher has found.

    The Register of Education and Training Providers is described by the Department for Education and Skills as "a list of genuine education and training providers.

    But it includes one London-based private "university" that boasts that it "opts not to proceed with accreditation". Another is a private college that shares its name, address, phone number and senior staff with a partner "university" that admits it has no UK "approval" of its quality or its teaching content and methods.

    The register was compiled by the Home Office and the DFES as part of a clampdown on bogus colleges acting as fronts for illegal immigration scams.

    Although the DFES says the list "does not quality assure or accredit in any way" those listed, its website says that registered institutions have been "assessed and validated by the DFES".

    A DFES spokesperson acknowledged that "there is room for improvement" with the register and confirmed that the department was working on a replacement.

    One controversial body on the register is Newport International University, based in Northeast London. Its website says it awards degrees through a licence with the Wyoming Department of Education in the US, but this does not amount to accreditation.

    Its Hong Kong site says that it is not accredited but adds that this "does not determine the legitimacy of a university".

    It warns students: "It is the student's responsibility to determine whether credits, degrees or certificates from the institution will transfer to other institutions or meet employers' requirements".

    The principal at Newport in the UK, A. Andrews, said: "We are a centre here providing support and teaching for a US degree. We have got the necessary registration with the US."

    Another controversial organisation on the register is Warnborough College, founded in Oxford in 1973. It was criticised in the mid-Nineties after students walked out claiming they had been misled into believing they were joining an Oxford University college. The college this week said the students had been expelled and accused a recruitment agent of misleading them.

    The college is now based in Canterbury, where it shares its address, phone number, senior staff, its alumni association and its logo and foundation date with a "Warnborough University".

    Warnborough is a limited company registered in Ireland, but it does not receive funding or regulation from the Irish Government.

    A spokesman at Warnborough said the college was a "member college" of the university, but added that they were "two separate entities, with the university functioning within Irish law and the college functioning clearly within the laws of England".

    "Everything is legitimate and we have no worries or problems," he said. He said the university "clearly stated" on its website that it did not offer UK degrees.

    ps. Not everything in Britain is spick and span.

    1. So how come they are UKBA approved to bring overseas students into the UK? If they were bogus then they would not be British Council Accredited either. Obvious that there is a lot of misleading information going around in Malaysia.

  65. Anonymous 9:30, Accreditation is not an overnight affair. The simple truth is that WCI is now accredited as a "Premier College" by ASIC which enjoys international recognition as an independent accreditation agency. Don't confuse the issue by talking about things in 2005. In case, you don't realise, we are now in mid-2013.

    3. What university hasn't had a chequered history? Look at Harvard University where the founder was in prison twice. Look at Bond University where the founder was in prison for many years! Lots of colleges and universities have had problems, and they still do - look at the Chronicle of Higher Education and see how many accredited colleges and universities are being sued.

  70. This is supposed to be a balanced blog so everyone is entitled to their opinion. I did my research. I am a consultant based in London. I have visited Warnborough in Canterbury and Dublin. They exist. They are accredited. They have students from all over the world taking classes on site and by distance learning. They prepare students for entrance to UK universities and overseas. They would not be UKBA approved to accept foreign students if they were bogus in any form. Nor would they be accredited by so many bodies. I suggest you visit them so you know what you are talking about rather than listening to gossip. I am not on anyone's payroll.
