Chinese students face hostility at Warwick

International Edu News

Spate of attacks on Chinese students in the Canley district of Coventry, very close to the University of Warwick campus, has sent shockwaves through the local community and highlighted safety concerns for international students. Students choose to study and live here because it is a modern, culturally diverse, vibrant city.

West Midlands Police said that they received multiple incident reports and that students have a right to study without their safety being compromised due to hate crime . 

The response from the University of Warwick has been to both provide a shuttle bus service as requested by the students and to offer alternative accommodation in some cases. Coventry University has a zero tolerance policy towards any form of bullying, harassment or discrimination against the students and staff and that incidents could be reported anonymously online.
