This breakout session was repeated in both the morning and the afternoon and presented findings from UUKi’s new outward mobility research report, Gone International: Mobility Works, published in March 2017. This report is the third in a series of national cohort studies which outline the profiles, destinations and outcomes of mobile students.
With a focus on mobility rates and outcomes across different student profiles, subjects, mobility types and schemes, this research aims to provide institutions with data to support them in discussions about increasing participation of underrepresented groups in outward mobility activities.
This year the report included limited additional data on type, length and scheme used for mobility, and the disaggregation of outcomes by scheme, which helps to highlight the currently substantial contribution of the Erasmus+ programme to the overall outward mobility landscape for the UK.
