It's a little hobby of mine to contact schools and ask questions about their programs. I'm sure I'm not the only one here who does this. With the costs of higher education completely out of control here in the United States, it makes sense that some are seeking education from institutions outside of the country where prices are more reasonable. But one thing to be mindful of is the language and cultural understanding barriers because those two things can really throw a wrench into the situation. I contacted Amity University (regionally accredited by WASC, btw) curious about the numbers weeks that each class runs, and the response from several different admissions counselors was everything from the length of the entire degree program to the number of weeks per semester, but never an answer to the number of weeks per class. I politely attempted to restate the question in several ways only to get the same answers. I also asked similar basic questions about transfer credit limits, degree eligibility for Masters programs, and the limit on the number of courses one can take during a semester, all basic questions, all of which got similar answers that didn't tackle the question properly. It quickly became clear to me that they just simply did not understand what was being asked. This made me think, if that's an issue during the admission process, imagine what it would be like in class? In my American-based degree programs I've had foreign instructors who weren't native English speakers so while they spoke well they didn't understand certain specifics of the language (and they didn't realize it) and would sometimes grade papers and mark off parts inaccurately. It was frustrating. This is not to say that all foreign schools are to be avoided, but my guess is that one will probably run into fewer misunderstandings if the school is in a native English-speaking country.
