THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Next steps for increasing the number of UK students studying, or undertaking work experience, overseas is the focus for this conference.
As the Government explores the UK’s potential future participation in Erasmus+, delegates will discuss the challenges ahead for outward mobility - including the potential for alternative mobility programmes, and lessons that can be learnt from arrangements in Europe, such as the Swiss European Mobility Programme.
Delegates will also consider what will be needed to achieve the objectives of UUKi’s Outward Mobility Strategy 2017-2020 and campaign to double the number of students studying abroad - looking at priorities for building capacity within UK universities and for encouraging higher education institutions to share best practice.
Further sessions will discuss increasing opportunities for UK students to study outside of Europe; best practice in establishing partnerships with non-European universities; the potential role of internships in promoting global student mobility; and challenges for addressing barriers to wider participation - such as funding and language skills - following the launch of UUKi’s toolkit.
