How can we support more students to go abroad during their degree? In 2017, the UK, Ireland and Sweden ran projects to examine their national approaches to increasing participation in outward student mobility. This session will provide an overview of the impact of these recommendations and toolkits two years on, featuring case studies of institutional programmes and activities, analysis showing where impact has been achieved, and where more needs to be done to ensure mobility is open to all.
