Next steps for the UK’s outward student mobility strategy and involvement in Erasmus+

Morning, Tuesday, 6th March 2018

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This timely seminar will consider the next steps for increasing the number of UK students studying or undertaking work experience overseas.


Delegates will discuss priorities for outward mobility policy following UUKi’s Outward Student Mobility Strategy 2017-2020 and as the UK negotiates its exit from the EU, including the future for the UK’s participation in Erasmus+ and potential alternative mobility programmes.


Further sessions will assess how opportunities for UK students to study outside of Europe can be increased, including what can be learnt from best practice in establishing partnerships with non-European universities. Those in attendance will also consider how barriers - such as funding and language skills - to widening participation in outward mobility programmes can be addressed.
