Moving abroad to study can be an amazing opportunity and an invaluable life experience but that does not mean it comes without its own perils.
Transferring from one education system to another can be quite a process to navigate and does not run smoothly. Needless to say that no education system in the world is identical and what is acceptable education or academic standard in one Country, may well not be in England or Wales.
Often International students face challenges and can find themselves embroiled in situations that they did not anticipate being in. They can be accused of academic misconduct, yet they may not have even had the requisite training on academic practices. Be withdrawn from the programme for non-attendance, they could be unhappy with the standard of education, have concerns about lack of supervision or could be facing personal issues exasperated by being away from home and such issues impact their studies.
To further complicate matters the University Rules, Policies and Regulations can make it hard for international students to negotiate the system involved. University Regulations can be complex for home students, let alone international students facing a myriad of other challenges.
International students need to be treated fairly and being international should not go against you. Our Education Law specialist has been representing more and more international students who are fighting to have their voice heard in the changing academic climate.
