Drawbacks of UK universities
Now-a-days there is a huge increment in student exchange programs in all over the country. Many students pursue a foreign language course just to go and study abroad. European Union is an example of this. Yet there is an increase in student enrollment for studying abroad but it is also resulting in negligence of student’s mental health and welfare. It is also difficult for students to move to a foreign country and accept the new people and culture over there. Also they have lots of pressure of their academics. All these cases results in depression, anxiety, isolation, low self -esteem, immunity loss, lack of confidence and much more. But it takes a serious situation when the students don’t even know about their rights and much necessary information. In that cases, students usually consult with their counselors over there if they are provided with so, But in mostly cases they are left with no responses. This causes very critical trouble for students regarding to their mental health.
Points that must be kept in mind while moving to abroad:-
- In case of any mental health problem, charges should be paid by their respective universities.
- Mental health Care should be covered under Health Care Insurance.
- It should be access in both inside & outside the campus.
- Students must be guided about the health care services by the universities.
