This book consists of two academic studies conducted into the educational experience of overseas students in the UK. The first study, titled “The Educational and Learning Barriers Faced by Middle Eastern and Overseas Students in Post-Compulsory Education and Training” focused on a sample of overseas students resident in Plymouth, England. The aim of this study was to uncover the educational and learning barriers these students faced, and to make appropriate recommendations for reforms which could be made to UK post-compulsory education. The second study, titled “Enhancing Multicultural Practice in Post-Compulsory Education: A Sample Study of Refugee Overseas Students in Plymouth” again focused on a sample of overseas students in Plymouth. This study focused particularly on the multicultural aspect of their educational experiences. At a time when increasing numbers of overseas students are entering post-compulsory UK education, this book aims to contribute to the body of academic knowledge intending to define and resolve difficulties faced by overseas students in the UK.
