Inclusive yet diverse: getting it right for international students

Universities must provide international students with clear and unambiguous information on recruitment and admissions, academic expectations, and employability, states new guidance published this week.In 2010-11, there were 428,225 international students studying in UK higher education – 17 per cent of all UK HE students. The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education QAA has published guidance on how universities and other providers can best support them. The guidance follows the typical international student journey, from the point of first contact with the university or college through to graduation and further study or employment. Its guiding principles include:• fostering an inclusive environment for international students• representing international students and their interests in student engagement activity• ensuring a shared responsibility for international student support from all staff, not just those with a specific remit.
