Resources for Lecturers Teaching International Students

This project found that international students’ undergraduate experiences prior to arrival in the UK to pursue postgraduate courses has a significant effect on their expectations and academic performance. Differences are particularly significant regarding:

Frequently these expectations and experiences are likely to put them at a disadvantage in relation to achieving on their courses but, more worryingly, are liable to open them up to charges of plagiarism and other forms of academic malpractice.

Electronic plagiarism detection software is designed to identify reproduced text (Video Presentation ) which can be a ‘trap’ for students for whom success and reward in academic contexts has been precisely to reproduce the authorities they have learned from.

These resources are designed to equip lecturers to provide support and guidance in workshops or consultancy to individuals or departments. They offer a picture of undergraduate-level academic practices typical of India, China and Greece, and seek to raise awareness of wider differences between university study in the UK and elsewhere. There are also papers and video materials which elaborate the issues in more depth. For each area there are suggested questions and activities which can form the basis of workshops and consultancy work.
