The rights and well-being of international students should be at the core of most institutional activities, covering areas such as marketing, teaching quality and support during studies. However, only a few countries have introduced codes of conduct to ensure consistency at the national level. In this session, participants will learn more about similarities and differences in existing code frameworks, and share their ideas for future development of such national or institutional level codes.
