University students to face fingerprint scanners to prove they are attending lectures - and they're not illegal immigrants | Mail Online

University students to face fingerprint scanners to prove they are attending lectures - and they're not illegal immigrants | Mail Online: University students may have to scan their fingerprints in future to prove they are going to their lectures.

Newcastle University plans to introduce biometric scanners to bring the institution in line with the UK Border Agency (UKBA) and clamp down on illegal immigrants.

Students and staff at the North-East university will be monitored through the Student Attendance system from the start of next academic year.
