One of UKCISA's key aims is to support members in providing the highest quality institutional support for international students and ensure international students in the UK have the best possible experience.
The aims of this scheme are twofold:
To enhance our understanding of the needs and/or experience of international students studying in the UK
- Pilot Projects
To encourage innovation, and develop and disseminate examples of best practice in international student support
The UKCISA Grants Scheme provides funding of up to £5,000 to UKCISA members for research to enhance our understanding of the needs and/or experience of international students studying in the UK.
The scheme started in 2015 and has run annually until 2018. UKCISA is pausing the scheme in 2019-20 to assess the impact of the research already completed and to review how the scheme might continue in the future.
