About the Go International 2017: in for the count conference

The conference brought together 155 UK and international outward student mobility experts and practitioners from higher education institutions, partner organisations and government departments to discuss strategic approaches to increasing the reach of mobility to all who can benefit, and good practice in expanding activities to underrepresented groups, subjects and activities.

Seven interactive sessions took place across the day, including discussions about reaching students from underrepresented groups; assessing the impact of short-term mobility; incorporating mobility into access agreements; reporting on mobility to HESA; and discussing findings from the most recent UUKi research on the benefits of mobility. The programme of the event can be found here.
