Supporting International Students in UK Higher Education

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This pack is designed to be used with teaching and support staff in HE institutions who wish to understand the needs of international students better and improve the ways in which they can be supported on both a personal and institutional level. It encourages teachers in higher education to reflect on their own practice regarding support for international students, and suggests ways in which support for such students can be improved and embedded within the context of their own higher education institution. The materials have been developed to be delivered over approximately six day-long workshops, and they can constitute a Masters-level module which might form part of a course such as a Certificate of Academic Practice; or be part of a professional development course; or alternatively, each unit could be used independently as a one-off personal development activity.
