    Encouraging news, even if 80% of the 30 are based outside the UK and will hardly be affected. I'd love to see a list, but none was provided.

    This is the organization that did all the work

    https://www.hedd.ac.uk/

    I have contacted them to see if the list is available.

    No need to wait. HEDD's list of bogus universities is near the end of this document, which outlines their various anti-fraud programs. They say most "schools" on this list have been shut down and provide much detail in some specific cases.

    Wait a minute! Many of these seem pretty old - names from years back. HEDD says these are a sample and more still are operating. I hope they closed some that aren't on here. We'll see, I guess.
