Enhancing the international student experience seminar

14 Dec 2017, 09:30 - 15:30
20 Tavistock Square 
London
United Kingdom
WC1H 9HQ

​Overview

A one-day seminar to examine effective approaches to improve the international student experience in the context of the current climate. The event is an opportunity for people in the HE sector who are interested in or responsible for enhancing the international student experience to come together and discuss, share and debate successful institutional strategies.​

Why are we talking about international student experience now? 

Alongside our annual Enhancing Student Experience Conference, this year we will be hosting a one day seminar focusing on International Students and the complex issues surrounding their success.

As we start negotiating our exit of the European Union, debate around student migration and a turbulent political climate around the world has added an air of uncertainty and anxiety for international students studying, or considering studying, in the UK. It is more important than ever for UK universities to deliver a first rate international student experience, and to reassure current and potential international students to the UK.

The day will be focused on highlighting  case studies, examples of best practice and successful strategies to help delegates gain the knowledge they need to make changes and improvements in their institutions.​

Receive a discount when you book for your place for this event along with a place at our Enhancing the student experience conference​ on 13 December. 

We have a range of sponsorship opportunities​ available at this event. Please contact Rachael Firth, Head of Events and Conferences for information. tel: 020 7419 5402; email: rachael.firth@universitiesuk.ac.uk
