Despite the new high level of HEU fees at undergraduate level, International students remain critical to the health and financial sustainability of UK higher education.  At postgraduate taught level, there has been a 200% increase in the intake of International students since 1999.  

International students who come from a diversity of backgrounds
and educational systems can be both enjoyable and challenging to recruit, teach and supervise. This is particularly true of those for whom English is not their first language.  

This conference will explore the journey of the international student into postgraduate education, from the point of recruitment through induction to the kinds of support needed for students at different stages of study, including preparing dissertations, how students can develop an independent academic voice when English is not their first language and  the kinds of pedagogies and strategies that can be used both when there is a truly international cohort and when there is a cohort of international students  predominantly from  one  country.

The focus of the event is on learning from and contributing to good practice in supporting International postgraduate students.
