This is a book written for two audiences - the international student who comes to the UK for degree studies and wants to get a good grade but it is also aimed at tutors working with international students. We have used our extensive experience of teaching in universities in the UK, our experiences of working overseas and the comments from international students, to inform this book. This is not an academic skills book but we consider more important questions for the international student of ‘Why are some assessment strategies used in my course or study, more difficult to undertake to pass and secure good grades than others?’ or from the tutors of ‘How can I increase engagement with my classes from international students?’
Our belief is that the more anyone understands about their own approaches to learning and teaching, and also the context in which they are studying then the easier they will find it too be successful.
