Teething troubles

December 29, 1995

I was surprised to see the newly revised Educational Counselling Service code of practice on international education dismissed as a marketing tool without real teeth (THES, December 15). My organisation produced the original code of practice on which the ECS document was first based and I regard the latest revision as the strongest document yet.

It covers areas hitherto ignored, such as franchising overseas, and deals for the first time with the consequences of institutions breaching its provisions. I welcome it and hope it will enhance the quality of services delivered to international students while helping to maintain the UK's attractiveness as a study destination.
