20-24 Tavistock Square
This conference will look at how new strategies for mobility are being forged within institutions and at a national level in the UK, amidst an ever-changing policy landscape. It will explore the reconfiguring of our relationship with Europe and how we can continue to support European mobility within or outside of the next Erasmus+ programme. It will touch on new strategic themes: collaboration across departments, inclusive mobility, internationalisation at home, climate concerns and blended mobility.
Most of all, the conference is an opportunity to share best practice in helping students study abroad, and to showcase the hard work, commitment and strategic planning from home and partner institutions operating and cooperating in uncertain environments.
Our Go International programme helps implement the UK Strategy for Outward Mobility. It works with UK higher education institutions, the Erasmus+ National Agency for the UK, sector agencies, careers services, employer representatives, overseas governments and professional, statutory and regulatory bodies to achieve the strategy's objectives.
Representing the UK higher education sector collectively, Go International works to increase participation in outward student mobility by:
providing an annual overview of mobility data and trends among UK participants, including the type and length of mobility being accessed, the demographics of participation and the most common destinations
supporting higher education staff to promote and deliver outward mobility programmes through a range of professional development events around the UK and an annual conference
delivering a diverse programme of research in collaboration with other sector agencies, providing quantitative and qualitative evidence of the benefits of mobility to UK higher education students
sharing knowledge and good practice across the sector through a biannual mobility network, involving over 70 higher education institutions and related organisations
