Perceptions Of International Students Regarding Equality At A Private College In The United Kingdom

My interest in the welfare of international students is due to the fact that l used to be one a few years ago and experienced the challenges of adapting to a new culture not only while studying but when engaged with the general community.

My subject specialist teaching area involves assisting learners to adopt the care value base which should be part of their professional and personal practice. My learners work with vulnerable people and some of them are practising to be managers which means they will be directly responsible for the welfare of others and therefore needed to develop skills for promoting equality within their work place.

As a result, l felt this had to start with how the learners felt in the classroom. The students had also hinted during normal classroom discussions about how they felt about equality within the college which l therefore decided to explore and find out to what extent and the impact.
