    In Commerce group work is very common. In a history degree it seems less common.

    But why? I don't get it. UNSW accepts people who have a great ATAR so how are there people who achieve high marks in high school yet they don't contribute to group work in uni?

    I mean you can't blame them because they're international. But if they're absolutely putting in NO effort at all then there's the problem.

    Once I literally wrote this *persons* speech for them, I tried to get them to give me dot points, and told them I didn't care whether they sent me the video or not, as my marks wasn't being assessed on it, and if they didn't hand it in quickly I wouldn't include their part, and that would mean they'd lose 10%.

    Guess what? They still sent me the video at the last minute, and I probably should've not included their part because they couldn't even be bothered to put any effort into it.

    Re: group work in uni

    heaps of those int students dont give a fucc about their grades thats why they dont put in work for assignments. they just want to pass at the bare minimum. they are here to get permanent residency and university is their pathway to it.

    I would rather literally take a kick in the scrotum than work with international students.

    no offense but why would an international student come to study in Australia if they knew very basic to no english?

    also Im sure you can make a complaint to a supervisor or something that they're doing nothing

    i have no idea. I wonder the same thing. If ur a tourist i understand cos you would piss off in like 6 months but if ur gonna be learning in English for 4+years idk why they would come

    Long story short, yes i spoke with the course conveyor nothing happened, school office nothing happened, the head of school nothing happened, and then finally the arc lawyer and they said it's too late to do anything now

    my advice would be to triple check decision that you are making with the correct people in charge.

    Spam them emails and call them up everyday

    They have to do the ielts test which they have to pass to a sufficient standard. Either they fudge it or the standard is really fuckin low

    Re: group work in uni

    they very likely set the bar lower for int students bc they pay unis full fee to study

    our international student program is really a clandestine cash (and some perfunctory study) for visas scheme
