Discrimination in International Education

What would be an example of indirect discrimination?

In classroom or workplace Favouritism, against to a particular race. On the grounds of race can occur when a rule or practice exists that appears neutral but in fact has a detrimental effect on persons of a particular race.

What is an example of a practice or behaviour that is not inclusive?

Discriminate by sex, marital status, religion, language, ethnic background, country of origin and disability.

Do you think an education institution in Australia would refuse an application for enrolment based on race? Why or why not?

An education institution in Australia would refuse an application for enrolment based on race is unlawful under the state and government legislation and discrimination. The Commonwealth Racial Discrimination Act 1975 also makes discrimination on the ground of race unlawful in employment and education.

Please share your opinion. Have you experienced discrimination against international students?
