Example text

The critics of internationalisation have also argued that that there is a drop in standards for entry, fraudulent practices by students and agents and poor quality control over the entry standards of foreign students (Kell and Vogl 2007a, b, c, d, 2009, 2010). Birrell has also criticised universities arguing that they are complicit in organising courses that facilitate migration outcomes and that the graduates from these courses are also inadequately skilled for the workplace, particularly the possession of good English language skills.

A shift in Australian migration policy has seen as move to skills migration with an emphasis on meeting skills vacancies in selected occupations, and this has tended to reduce options for the unskilled, those who are not job ready and those who fall outside the occupational vacancies profile that countries want. A general hardening of attitudes to migration, and particularly refugees, has seen government policy in a number of countries demonstrate high levels of suspicion about the motives of those migrating and anxiety that they are a threat to ‘unity’ of society (Moses 2006; Skeldon 2003).

Overwhelmingly, the emphasis and responsibility is placed on the student to conform and assimilate to their host environment. The institutional support is often minimalist, and the expectation is that students will ‘muddle through’ and demonstrate the resilience and determination to stick with the challenge of international study. Increasingly, this minimalist model is proving inadequate as students succumb to loneliness, alienation, depression and the associated mental states that accompany desperation and anomie.
