Session 08B

Intercultural skills: enhancing our ability to embrace a future in full colour

When the world came to a standstill in 2020, international student mobility halted too. In discussion with employers, we learned that the pandemic made the need for graduates to have intercultural understanding more obvious than before. This session will discuss the findings of an Erasmus+ project on skills gained by mobility, coupled with the options institutions have to instil these skills irrespective of mobility opportunities.
