Language Issue Important For ISP

During the 12th sitting of the International Student Panel (ISP), on January 11th, course representatives discussed students concerns regarding the smooth running of the MSc programmes. Two particular problems were highlighted regarding the use of English. The first concerns the giving of lectures in English where foreign students are registered for the course. Apparently this does not always occur if not all registered foreign students show up.

From another perspective, concern has been expressed, by the Standing Education Committee and the Standing Committee for Foreign Affairs, regarding the level of English language skills of students entering the MSc programme. It is clear that a more detailed inventory of both problems is required.
