For many students, mobility is a life-changing experience. Research shows however that students from disadvantaged backgrounds are less likely to be mobile. How do we ensure that all students have access to exciting mobility programmes?

Join us to share stories of success and to discuss the challenges universities face when supporting students to go abroad.
