Whether you have come from China, India, Russia, USA or any other part of the world to study in the UK, it is likely that you will experience a very different education system to the one you have been used to. International students will sometimes face difficulties at universities and colleges. They may find themselves in a situation where they have been accused of cheating or plagiarism. They may be disciplined for not attending classes or withdrawn because they did not submit their assignments in time.
The fact that you are an international student does not mean that you should be treated any differently to a home student. You must access the university or college procedures to protect your rights and to ensure that you have the best chance of completing your degree. Your public law rights are engaged just as much as a home student.
Whatever issue you are facing, we are able to assist. Every year we help hundreds of international students in a variety of ways during the course of their studies. We have access to knowledgeable and experienced barristers and our highly specialised team at Match Solicitors has the ability and skill to help you understand how best to protect your position. We can also assist you in negotiating what sometimes seems like a maze of procedures to international students because the system of education is so different.

“ The service was first class and I was encouraged by the Solicitors sound knowledge of education law. Having a child with special needs is a challenge to any parent and the whole process of going to an educational tribunal can be quite daunting. Match Solicitors was able to get the job done professionally and to the highest standard and yet still retaining a very caring and human side which was very reassuring. ”
