“Parting is such sweet sorrow”: supporting international students to leave and return

Through brief presentations from sector experts and a group discussion, this interactive session will explore the ways that staff can support students to take up a short or long-term mobility opportunity. Focusing on the ‘encompassing all voices’ conference theme, presenters will look at ways of better ensuring that students from diverse backgrounds benefit from the transformational experience of studying abroad, as well as helping to aid their transition back home to ensure a safe return.
