Accurate reflection means you summarize what you have heard from someone else or summarize your own feelings.
Rosemary Deem, vice-principal (education) at Royal Holloway, University of London and chair of the UK Council for Graduate Education, said that there was now a “big risk” to taught postgraduate recruitment and that there was “no question” that the viability of some courses would be affected.
In the wake of Brexit, EU postgraduates would probably have to pay international student fees, which are significantly higher than the home rates they currently have access to, and would probably lose access to the master’s loans being introduced this September, Professor Deem said.
Some may not be clear about what they are feeling because they weren't allowed to experience their feelings or learned to be afraid of their feelings.
People may mask their feelings because they have learned that others don't react well to their sensitivity.
When done in an authentic manner, with the intent of truly understanding the experience and not judging it, accurate reflection is validating.
Sometimes this type of validation helps someone sort through their thoughts and separate thoughts from emotions.
Often one of the reasons other people are uncomfortable with intense emotion is that they don't know what to say.
Just being present, paying complete attention to the person in a nonjudgmental way, is often the answer.
Durham University and Goldsmiths, University of London have offered the same guarantee for 2018-19, while Coventry University and the University of Bedfordshire say that there will be no change for the next five years.
But it is unclear what access to loans future EU students would have to cover these fees once Brexit is complete.
“The fact many students will not come in a number of years is going to make a huge difference: some of these programmes will just go.” Higher Education Statistics Agency data show that some universities are particularly exposed to any significant decline in the number of these students: non-UK EU students made up more than one in five full-time students on taught postgraduate courses at 20 institutions last year.
