Reaching students from underrepresented subjects

05 May 2017

This session explored how to reach and provide for students from subjects that are underrepresented in outward student mobility, with speakers from UUKi, Robert Gordon University and Cardiff University. ​

The session opened with a brief outline of the national mobility rates for different disciplines, based on UUKi’s Gone International research, before turning to two good practice case studies. Delegates learned how Robert Gordon University navigated Nursing and Midwifery Council and National Agency requirements to set up their successful nursing and midwifery mobility programmes, and how Cardiff University approaches the provision of summer programmes and tailored marketing to target students from underrepresented fields more broadly.
