UK Strategy for Outward Student Mobility 2017-2020

Report
26 April 2017

New UK Strategy for Outward Student Mobility 2017 – 2020 has been launched by Universities UK International with aim to double the percentage of UK-domiciled, full-time, first degree students who undertake international placements as part of their higher education programmes to just over 13% of students by 2020.

This will create a new generation of global graduates, and a higher education culture in which international opportunities are an aspiration for all students.

In order to achieve its vision of increasing the proportion of UK-domiciled students accessing international opportunities, the second phase of the UK Strategy for Outward Student Mobility has the following six objectives:

  1. Promote the benefits of study and work abroad

  2. Monitor trends in student mobility

  3. Build capacity in UK higher education to facilitate outward mobility

  4. Share best practice in UK higher education

  5. Provide a collective voice for UK higher education

  6. Influence government for UK higher education
