Global student mobility trends show that students’ reasons to study abroad are diversifying. This creates an ever-expanding need for host institutions to innovate and improve their support models. This session will present a model which draws from the tools of positive psychology, and is aimed at increasing positive experiences and emotions among exchange students, as well as fostering their personal responsibility and commitment towards their own subjective well-being while living abroad.
