Sad and unfortunate. Well I suppose the university’s stance has certainly drawn attention to the problem. To an extent this is happening in the UK where the tendency for university courses to go from 3 to 4 years reflects an extra year to bring students up to scratch
Indeed – it’s almost like students here need an introductory year in the same way that students in English-medium universities outside the Anglosphere may require the same.
