이 seems to be short for 이것. Can a fluent speaker confirm please?

I mentioned on another post, but 이, 그, and 저 all stand by themselves respectively as "this", "the/that," and "that (over there)." Likewise 것 stands alone as "thing." You'll see 이 그 and 저 used before any noun.

"That student" is wrong, in this case?

That student: - 그 학생 if the student near the listener (away from speaker) - 저 학생 if the student away from both speaker and listener.
