University of Wales takes action against dubious colleges

It's very frustrating to come in second place.

For months I've been meaning to write about various colleges associated with the University of Wales. UOW is a perfectly respectable British university with an impressive history but in recent times it's allowed some rather dubious establishments to receive it's accreditation and approval.

However it's too late. The BBC has just reported that UOW has been criticised for failing to adequately check these establishments and has now announced it:
"will now award degrees only for courses it designs and fully controls"
At least UOW did something to protect it's reputation.
