Abstract

In the United Kingdom Higher Education is propelled by Government policy and monitored by university recruitment, retention and teaching and learning strategies and yet when international students arrive at these publicly funded and accountable institutions the results can be horrid, very very horrid. Exploring the relationship between Government influence and corporate behaviour within the Higher Educational HE context of the United Kingdom UK, this paper provides an overview of current Governmental policy towards resourcing higher education, and considers the impact of these policies for Widening Participation students, including international students. The paper concludes with the experiences of one student, who narrates his story and as the story unfolds, we start to view the system of Government, University and Course through the eyes of an outsider. Sinfield, Burns & Holley 2004. This personal narrative illustrates how systems Governmental, Institutional and at Course level can totally fail an individual.
