The advertising watchdog has told six UK universities to take down marketing claims that could be misleading (reports BBC Education).
Leicester, East Anglia, Strathclyde, Falmouth, Teesside and the University of West London have all had complaints upheld against them. The Advertising Standards Authority is warning against exaggerated claims made to attract students.
Chief executive Guy Parker says students need “good evidence” when making such a big financial commitment.
“Misleading would-be students is not only unfair, it can also lead them to make choices that aren’t right for them,” said Mr Parker.
