Abstract / Description

Students who have English as a Second Language (ESL) in higher education (HE) institutions experience various difficulties and have specific issues and concerns that impinge on assessment practice. This paper identifies what these are as well as their significance within London Metropolitan University, within the context of multicultural and international HE within the UK and across a broad set of disciplines. It will also examine the implications of ESL and assessment within my own discipline, Journalism, where language is both the principal currency for success and the final product.
