03 June 2012 - Sudhir Gopi Holdings institutes closed (Gulf News)
  • 03 June 2012 update - all SWG Holding institutes in UAE are closed? A GN report with the headline "Bogus institutions leave students in the lurch" said An official from Dubai Police said Gopi, an Indian businessman from Kerala, used to own Sudhir Gopi Holdings in the UAE and was deported from the country in 2010. Gopi had opened many universities in Dubai. All were shut. Police said the institutions under Sudhir Gopi Holdings were UEIMS School of Medicine and Dentistry, Ras Al Khaimah; Mahatma Gandhi University Off Campus Centre, Dubai International Academic City; and Indira Gandhi National Open University Centre, Dubai International Academic City. ... Mohammad Darwish, chief, Regulations and Compliance Commission, KHDA, told Gulf News while they had commercial licences from the free zone authorities, the KHDA did not issue Educational Services Permits to them. All three were undergoing KHDA’s quality assurance process as set out by the University Quality Assurance International Board. They decided to move to another emirate before they completed the process.
  • Rajagiri International School (RIS) Dubai appears to still be operating though, although it was not without controversy in November 2011. But that might have been unrelated to SG Holdings (not clear if they are or were still involved in the operation of the school anyway).
