Note from the Editors

This short, reflective piece was invited by the editors to illustrate the lived experience of many international undergraduate students in their first year on campus during Covid 19 Level 5 restrictions.

While there is nothing particularly dramatic or sensational in the piece, it does raise important questions regarding all the thought and effort invested in ‘the student experience’ of university in normal times, as well as questions about the time and funding invested in collaborative and group-based learning, and about current ideas around the design of ‘learning spaces’ and e-learning platforms.

No doubt, when the pandemic crisis is over there will be much ‘reflection’ on the entire configuration of higher education from the perspective of international students!
