Universities warned over student 'sales pitches'

Universities warned over student ‘sales pitches’

Universities in England have been told to be more transparent about how they recruit students and not to make exaggerated marketing claims.

The Office for Students’ annual report warns against sales tactics such as financial inducements or “unconditional” exam-grade offers.

The higher education watchdog’s chief executive, Nicola Dandridge, has promised a review of admissions.

Universities Minister Chris Skidmore warned of “pockets of poor practice”.

The OFS warned increasing competition between universities was raising concerns about unfair pressure being put on students looking for places.

“Students can be offered enticements and inducements which are often not in their best interests, at a time when they may be especially vulnerable,” Ms Dandridge said

And they could face a “sales pitch with questionable incentives” – exaggerated claims about degree courses or the promise of bursaries for students looking for places in the clearing system after A-level results are released.

50 UNN lecturers to withdraw their IPPIS enrollment — ASUU Chairman

At least 50 of the 153 members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, University of Nigeria, Nsukka chapter, that enrolled in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) in the institution were set to withdraw, an official has said.

The chairman said the congress agreed to publish the names of all the 153 lecturers, who enrolled in IPPIS in UNN-ASUU notice board so that members will know them.

ASUU-UNN will issue queries to these defaulting members as well as forward their names to national body for appropriate sanction.

“This is because ASUU national body said from the beginning that IPPIS enrollment is a complete violation of university autonomy and illegal,” Opata said.

The ASUU boss said that the union was not bothered about Federal Government’s threat of “no work no pay”, adding that ASUU was used to government’s threats.

:If government makes good its threat that academic staff that did not enroll will not receive salary, ASUU has no option than to embark on an indefinite nationwide strike.

“ASUU has told government that if it wants its members to enroll in IPPIS, government should first amend the law creating public universities that granted them autonomy.

“ASUU is waiting on government’s final decision on IPPIS enrollment in public universities before the union will take its own final decision,” Opata said.

Nigerian students deported to Bosnia plead to be sent home

Two Nigerian student table tennis players are begging authorities in Sarajevo to return them to their home country after they were wrongly deported to Bosnia by Croatian police, who mistook them for undocumented migrants.

In an interview with the Guardian, Abia Uchenna Alexandro and Eboh Kenneth Chinedu said they were victims of injustice and that the only reason they were forcibly taken to Bosnia is that they are black.

“We told the truth and we have evidence of it,” said Chinedu via telephone from an immigration centre in east Sarajevo where the pair are detained. Uchenna and Chinedu, students at the Federal University of Technology Owerri in Nigeria, arrived in Croatia with a regular visa on 12 November, on their way to participate in the fifth World InterUniversities Championships, held this year in Pula.

The pair, both 18, left Pula for the Croatian capital, Zagreb, after the tournament and were supposed to fly to Lagos on 18 November. “The night before our departure, on the 17th, we checked out from the hostel and went for a walk in Zagreb,” said Chinedu. “Suddenly … we were stopped by the police who asked us for our identification documents. We tried to explain that our passports were in the hostel and that we had a regular visa, but they paid no attention to what we were saying.”

The officers allegedly mistook them for undocumented immigrants, put them in a van and transferred them to the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina where, that day, Croatian authorities had gathered together a group of migrants who were intercepted as they were attempting to cross the country.

“There were men from Pakistan at the border,” said Chinedu. “They had been caught by the Croatians while attempting to cross the border from Bosnia. Police eventually ordered us to move through the woods. I refused and begged them one more time to check our status, but they wouldn’t listen. They kicked me in the back and told me they would shoot me if I didn’t move.”

Uchenna and Chinedu were eventually deported to Bosnia and ended up in a camp in Velika Kladuša, where thousands of migrants live in cramped tents without water or heating, and with temperatures as low as -2C.

The plight of the two students has made the news around the world and sparked a row between Croatia and Bosnia. Last weekend they were transferred to an immigration centre in east Sarajevo.

“Those people are victims of illegal acts on the Croatian side,” Dragan Mektić, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s minister of security, told al-Jazeera. “It is obvious that Croatian police forcibly displaced them.”

Sparks University Protests for Bangladesh Student Killing

Students in Bangladesh staged protests and blocked major roads Monday after an undergraduate was beaten to death, allegedly by ruling party activists, for criticizing the government over a water-sharing deal with India.

Protests broke out at several universities in Dhaka and the northern city of Rajshahi following the killing of Abrar Fahad of the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.

Students chanted slogans demanding “justice” and blocked major roads in the two cities. Teachers joined some of the protests.

Dhaka deputy police commissioner Munstasirul Islam told AFP that Fahad was beaten to death and that ruling party activists were in custody for questioning.

His body was found in his university dormitory and media quoted other residents as saying that members of the student wing of the ruling Awami League had interrogated and beaten him.

Ashikul Islam Bitu, a vice-president of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), told NTV that Fahad had been questioned over alleged links to an Islamist party’s youth group.

Hours earlier, Fahad put up a post on Facebook that went viral. In it, he criticized the government for signing an accord that allowed India to take water from a river that lies on the boundary the two countries share.

The BCL has earned notoriety following accusations that its members used killings, violence and extortion to end major anti-government student protests last year.

Those protests were sparked by anger over road safety after a student was killed by a speeding bus.

Last month the BCL president and general secretary were sacked over allegations they tried to extort money from the head of a state-run university.
