Taking a new and expanded approach to marketing mobility is a key element in growing the number of students who are outwardly mobile. Many of our Go International partner institutions have committed to undertake expanded marketing activity as part of their pledge.
These shareable, student facing assets are designed to help you market mobility to your students on your social media channels. They have been developed to address the barriers that students told us could prevent them from taking part in outward mobility programmes, including: worrying about language barriers, financial worries, concerns about how their grades could be affected, and not wanting to leave friends behind.
