Mobility Management Report



​In summer 2018, UUKi designed and disseminated a mobility management survey.  The aim of this survey and accompanying analysis is to provide the sector with a fuller picture of the breadth and scale of mobility operations across the UK.


Executive summary:

  • 83% of the universities responding to the survey include outward mobility in their institution’s strategic plan and 46% have a dedicated outward student mobility strategy
  • 65% of universities have an outward mobility target
  • For half of universities the growth area in mobility is short-term programmes
  • 90% of universities reported that their budget for outward mobility had either increased or stayed the same, however 46% of universities reported being under resourced
  • Over half of universities have increased funding allocated to outward mobility scholarships
