UKCISA - Exploring: Equity, Inclusion and Innovation: a sustainable international student policy

This session will discuss UKCISA’s recent policy position paper, ‘Equity, Inclusion and Innovation: a sustainable international student policy’. It will explore how the paper aims to ensure that the UK’s global image remains positive and welcoming for prospective and current students and supports the continued success of the whole education sector. Further, it supports the work of UKCISA and its members through the #WeAreInternational campaign to counter recent negative perceptions of the UK as a study destination for international students.

It will also unpack some of the policy issues identified by UKCISA and its members, reflect on the five areas for improvement and outline recommendations for governments to shape international student immigration and other policy matters related to the international student experience in the UK.

Join us for this IC Café, open to institutional Heads and Directors and colleagues.
