Inaccurate claim by college

The University of Kent at Canterbury is concerned to discover that Xue Cui College, in Hong Kong, has been distributing prospectuses and placing adverts in the press stating that there is a relationship between the university and the college.
The University of Kent at Canterbury had never heard of this college until it received an e-mail from Apple Daily on August 14 asking if there was any relationship between that college and the university.
The university has never had any contact with the college and does not recognise any qualifications awarded by this or any other private college in Hong Kong for advanced progression to the university's degree programmes. It has no academic links whatsoever with this college, or any other private college in Hong Kong.
