Gone International: expanding opportunities webinar

28 Jun 2018, 11:00 - 12:00

​Katherine Allinson, Policy Researcher on Outward Student Mobility will be leading a webinar on this year’s new Gone International report – Gone International: Expanding Opportunities

The annual publication compares the academic and employment outcomes of undergraduate students that spent time abroad as part of their degree with those that didn’t. The latest report looks at the 2015-16 graduating cohort. 

For the first time, the report examines the impact of short-term international placements that last up to four weeks. It also expands student profiles analysed to include, disabled students, students from low-participation neighbourhoods, part-time students, students who are care-leavers and mature students. Tune in to our webinar to find out more.
