Topic(s): Student experience
Type(s): UKCISA Grants, Pilot project, Funded in 2016-17

UKCISA allocates funds to members to develop ideas and test out good practice activities which the whole education sector can learn from, adapt and develop. This publication brings together reports from 13 projects which were completed in 2017.

The broad range of projects  demonstrates the outstanding support available for international students studying in the UK and the commitment of staff working with them. You will find projects ranging from student wellbeing workshops, using WeChat to engage Chinese students, online training for student reps, a student safety awareness campaign, an academic writing boot-camp, as well as a project to support academic and cultural challenges which involved substantial research.

Please see an additional project, Language Cafés from University of Glasgow QMU, which was also completed in 2017.
