Between 2007 and 2008, the number of students from Bangladesh travelling to the UK for education more than quadrupled. Many were from modest families who emptied their pockets to send their teenagers abroad for a prestigious British degree. After being promised a world class education they often arrived in the UK ill-prepared and victims of fraud. Shattered Dreams explores the personal stories of Bangladeshi students who fell victim of scams, largely through the malpractice of agents in their own country in collusion with now defunct private colleges in the UK.
