VOX POP: Residents’ attitudes towards International students

Are there too many international students? What is the attitude of people towards them?

Recently, some societies in Coventry reported that some international students broke traffic rules and residents near Warwick University had the same complains as well. They worried that it might cause big traffic accidents.

Situation in Cardiff is mainly different. Marian, who lived near Cardiff University, said she did not see so many international students jaywalking in here, and it might be university’s duty as well to inform students. And Yu Zhang, a Chinese student studied in Business School, said, “Maybe because we are new here, everything is different, we have to adapt. But I will try not to do that.”

It’s not that we have to find out someone to blame. No one wants to see tragedy, it’s better to have it under control before it happens.
