Internationalisation: encouraging international student mobility (1146)

Internationalisation is high priority for every university. Across all higher education institutions strategies are being developed and implemented to ensure students are enriched to become graduates with the right skills, knowledge and experiences to compete in global employment markets. This presentation will draw on doctoral research covering areas such as: why internationalisation?; internationalising the curriculum for school pupils by designing innovative interventions; how to design interventions to reach students and families earlier; using narratives from Study Abroad students to inspire students who don’t traditionally consider study abroad; and how policy, practice and research can work together to create a ‘third space’.
