April 11, 2013

Paul White’s suggestion that we ban country-specific student societies to ensure that foreign students integrate (“Ban country clubs so foreign students mix”, 4 April) is a radical idea but futile. When I was senior warden in the accommodation services at the University of Edinburgh, we tried all manner of “social engineering” - by nationality, subject, gender and even type of secondary education. Nothing worked.
