The Welsh brand of education could be devalued if allegations of accepting substandard work from overseas students are true, warned the leader of the Conservatives on 16 October 2012.
Andrew RT Davies AM raised his concerns following a BBC Wales investigation into masters business courses undertaken by foreign students.
A lecturer, who gave an anonymous interview, has warned that pressure by university authorities to secure funding from international students means some standards of courses are lowered.
Currently overseas students generate 32% of universities fee income.
Mr Davies called on all dissertations to be made available across the higher education sector.
He also argued that the concerns of the students and professors should be addressed as a matter of urgency.
First Minister Carwyn Jones stressed that the government would look into the matter if there was evidence to support the alligations.
He also answered questions on unemployment, affordable housing and the memorandums of understanding between the Welsh government, UK government and other devolved administrations.
