Finding its place: TNE and student mobility

Supported by our friends at Heriot-Watt University, this one day workshop will explore how TNE and student mobility can be linked in international strategies and strengthen the potential for each to succeed.

Finding its place: TNE and student mobility, Wednesday 5 April 2017, 10:30am-3:30pm

South Pod, Edinburgh Business School, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, EH14 4AS

UUKi’s Outward Student Mobility programme published ‘Gone International: mobility works’ last week, which shows a correlation between mobility periods and improved outcomes for the 2014-15 graduating cohort of students. With TNE numbers dramatically rising, can the UK’s universities leverage their teaching and learning presences overseas to boost mobility and increase their students’ likelihood of achieving 1st class or 2:1 degrees, being employed in graduate roles six months after graduation, and increased salary? The potential is there; this event will look at how to harness the opportunities to greatest effect. Are we at a turning point for taking a more strategic approach to TNE and student mobility?

Join us next month at ‘Finding its place: TNE and student mobility’ where university managers, students, policy analysts and researchers will all be sharing their insights into the latest trends in TNE and universities’ internationalisation agendas. Just some of the confirmed contributors are:

  • Leo Bøe, HEGlobal Policy Researcher, Universities UK International

  • Raegan Hiles, Head of Outbound Mobilities Programmes (HEGlobal and Go International), Universities UK International

  • William Lawton, Director of Research, EuroMENA Research

  • Ben Matthews, Deputy Chief Executive, Lancaster University Students’ Union

  • Rebecca Maxwell-Stuart, HE consultant and doctoral student, Heriot-Watt University

  • Ruth Moir, Assistant Principal (International Development), Heriot-Watt University

  • Speaker tbc, Common Purpose

Together we will look at how TNE and mobility goals can work together to enhance UK universities’ international ambition, strategy and delivery.
