For many students, mobility is a life-changing experience. Research shows however that disadvantaged learners are less likely to be mobile. How do we ensure that all students have access to exciting mobility programmes? What are the barriers to mobility for students from disadvantaged backgrounds, and what action can be taken to address these barriers? Join us to share stories of success and to discuss the challenges universities face when supporting students to go abroad.
