Communication issues are so common for international students that every year our team of specialist education solicitors help hundreds of such students in a wide variety of different circumstances. Whether the issue is one of attendance, the submission of assignments or even plagiarism, it's important that you defend yourself if you've been treated unfairly.
If you have been faced with allegations of plagiarism and you believe they are unfair or that you have not received adequate guidance about what constitutes plagiarism from your university or college, you can make an appeal to an Academic Misconduct Panel.
There are all sorts of mitigating circumstances that can prevent students making the progress they would like to make during their placement year. If you have been withdrawn from a placement year or university course, Match Solicitors can help you build up a detailed, compelling and convincing appeal to give you a strong chance of being reinstated.
Many Ph.D. students believe that when they are the victims of poor or unfair treatment at the hands of their lecturers or supervisors, they have little option but to accept this treatment and no legal right to defend themselves. However, this is thankfully not the case.
The 2010 Equality Act means that universities must make reasonable adjustments to ensure that disabled students and students with any kind of special educational needs receive as good an education as able-bodied students.
For most people, sitting exams is a fairly stressful experience. However, the experience can be made worse if there are circumstances that are wholly beyond the control of the students taking the exam. Extraneous circumstances can lead to dire consequences for exam results.
All universities, colleges and other educational institutions within the UK are subject to the 2010 Equality Act. Once a student's university is aware of their disability, it is then obliged under the law to ensure that there are systems in place that will address and ameliorate any potential problems arising from that student's disability.
Dyslexia amounts to a disability under the Equality Act 2010. What this means is that now any educational institution, including schools, colleges and universities, are obligated under UK law to make reasonable adjustments for dyslexic pupils and students. The precise level of the support offered can vary, but generally speaking, all dyslexic students should be offered certain types of assistance in order to help them complete their studies.
Many students mistakenly believe that when it comes to what they consider poor treatment at the hands of their teachers, lecturers or indeed Ph.D. supervisors, they have no rights and no recourse to the law. This is not the case. Since university tuition fees were introduced in the UK in 1998, the legal relationship between the student and education provider has changed drastically.
Excellent service. Will recommend Match Solicitors to friends and fellow students.
