    It would be nice if you can provide the information as to where you obtained this information from. Do you have any links you can post where you found this information?

    i'll confirm that this is true. the school found out about this this past semester and is supposedly making changes to rectify it by increasing hours spent in school from september onwards. if i'm not wrong, it was an issue with the hours spent in school, as well as some of the classes being a bit ** and redundant. that's why the classes are being reorganized and combined, and such.

    i'll check the link and see if it checks out, but it's certainly not a rumor, however there are still a few UK students at windsor, so perhaps there is stil hope in regaining approval/accreditation.

    this means windsor doesn't have rotations in london anymore, either, right?

    It might be common for schools to make required adjustments as the regulating authorities makes changes in their policies. I do not think this is a big issue and I am sure school will try to sort things out quickly and take necessary corrective steps.

    It means that anyone who wants to practice in the UK is screwed for now. They cannot apply for the PLAB or licensure in the UK. Fortunately this doesn't have much effect on the people wanting to practice in the US
