Filling the university information gap

by Andrew Norton


The Ombudsman claims that international students are being admitted with inadequate English proficiency and sometimes passed when they should fail.

The financial incentive for universities to enrol more students can conflict with their responsibility to ensure international students do not waste time and money on courses they are unlikely to pass. Increasing the collection of information on student prospects and performance by independent sources will help protect international students and their future employers.
