How to enable international students to profit from collaboration with local initiatives and stakeholders

The collaboration between universities and the local community helps international students in their integration and gives them more information about future career options in a foreign country. However, does this work in practice? What kind of local information and events are available for them? This session will share best practice examples of how universities in Copenhagen, Singapore and Zürich are cooperating with local initiatives, and what students and universities gain from it.
