Germany: Foreign students win better deal in face of entrenched discrimination,. WILL UK FOLLOW?

New legislation adopted by the German parliament is set to improve prospects for foreign students and academics, just as the results of a new survey show that many international students are put off staying on in Germany due to discrimination.

In Germany 39.4% of international students surveyed by the Expert Council of German Foundations on Integration and Migration (SVR), said they had encountered discrimination or prejudice because they were foreign.

Of the five countries surveyed, only France had a marginally worse record (39.9%). Students in the UK reported the lowest experience of discrimination or prejudice (27.4%), followed by The Netherlands (30.1%) and Sweden (34.9%).
