ARB's hindering misses another opportunity

  • Comment

Jon Levett's description of my comment on the massive hike in registration fees for foreign students as 'nonsense' (Letters, AJ 11.11.04) is as disrespectful as his reference to consultation with SCHOSA, the RIBA, RIAS, RSUA, RSAW, and all schools of architecture is disingenuous.

Consultation, Mr Levett, does not amount to authorisation, and the reason that the ARB's inflated charges for foreign students militate against people's right to work in this country is precisely because that legal right is tempered by their capacity to meet such exorbitant costs.

Despite the semantics, one thing is for sure - the ARB never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity. Here again is an issue over which it could easily have gained credit for helping, rather than hindering, young people in the advancement of their careers. Sure enough, the ARB prefers to hinder.
