Taking globalised student needs seriously: Third Culture Kids in short-term programming

  • Thursday 28 Sept
  • Level 2, Level 2, Rotterdam Ahoy

With the intention of starting a new conversation in international higher education, this poster focuses on students who live highly internationalised lives and are struggling to find an affirmed identity. ‘Third Culture Kids’ can experience feelings of loss, a lack of belonging and a lack of words to describe and make sense of their biographies. How can we help these students grow as citizens and professionals through summer schools and short-term programming?
