  • 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
