20 Tavistock Square
This one-day conference organised by UUK and UUKi in partnership with UKCISA is the must attend event for all those in the higher education sector who are interested in or responsible for enhancing the international student experience.
The event is an opportunity for delegates to come together and discuss, share and debate successful institutional strategies and examine effective approaches to improving the international student experience in the context of the current climate.
Delegates will discuss what the UK higher education sector currently looks like for international students, explore what institutions can do to mitigate threats to their experience, and examine successful institutional approaches to improving and enhancing their time studying at a UK university.
The issues surrounding international student success are more complex than ever. As progress is made in negotiating the terms of our exit of the European Union, an unstable political climate and the ongoing debates around student migration have fuelled a feeling of doubt and unease for international students studying, or considering studying, in the UK. It is more important than ever to reassure current and potential international students, and to deliver a first-rate international student experience.
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.
During the event delegates will have a chance to hear first-hand from students studying in the UK and abroad about their experiences of being an international student, including what worked and what could have been better.
The day will include a combination of plenary sessions, panels, round table discussions and workshops as well as several networking opportunities, providing delegates with the best opportunity to engage with and learn from the event.
This conference will be useful for staff who have responsibility for or play a part in the international student experience at their university. Relevant job titles include:
