A brand new charter advocating international students’ rights has been adopted at the 24th Annual European Association for International Education (EAIE )Conference in Dublin.

About: The idea for the International Student Mobility Charter came up when recently when more than 2000 students faced potential removal from the UK after the London Metropolitan University had its licence to teach and recruit students from outside the EU revoked. The students involved were required to find an alternative institution to sponsor them; failing this, they were told that they would have to leave the UK.

According to UNESCO, by 2025 the number of international students is expected to rise to 8 million. With such a large number of students moving abroad to study, there is a definite need for governments, education institutions, and international agencies to endorse and support a charter outlining the rights of international students.

Keeping all these concerns of international students, to safeguard their interests, the European Association for International Education (EAIE ) has adopted a new global charter advocating the international students’ rights

Agenda: The International Student Mobility Charter covers concerns such as equity of treatment, integration of international students, portability and continuity of funding, visas and formal requirements, quality assurance of institutions, and other important issues affecting mobile students. Developed by a working group of international higher education associations which was led by the EAIE, the charter is aimed at fostering greater endorsement from key stakeholders in international education with the overarching objective of keeping students safe and protected during their study abroad periods.

The Charter calls upon the various governments and education institutions, as well as international agencies and associations of international education, to endorse, support and promote the following:

  • Equity of treatment
  • Inter- cultural competences
  • Integration of international students
  • Opportunity to complete studies
  • Portability and continuity of funding
  • Student status
  • Visas and formal requirements
  • Information
  • Student rights support
  • Quality assurance
