Date:Dec 2017
Topic(s): Student experience
Type(s): UKCISA Grants, Research, Funded in 2015-16
The University of York’s UKCISA-funded research was designed to assess the impact of a programme of intercultural training and events on the attitudes and experiences of ‘home’ and ‘international’ students in two colleges at the university. Although the response rate to surveys was low, the researchers draw some interesting, if tentative, conclusions and offer suggestions for future research. The Appendix to the report includes examples of the material used in the intercultural training and a resource guide as well as contact details for the research team.
