Inspiring good practice through projects and research
In 2017-18 we brought members together in three cities to showcase some of the fantastic projects and research that UKCISA has recently funded.
We heard directly from colleagues about the projects and research they have recently completed or about their work in progress. We discussed ways in which the learning can be developed, utilised and disseminated to others in the sector.
Members also discussed current issues of concern in their work supporting international students in the UK.

Primary contacts were able to nominate up to two members per institution to attend for free. We were keen to encourage staff from a variety of departments to join the discussions:
- All staff who work with international students (staff in recruitment, welfare, libraries, careers, counselling, compliance, registry, academic support, teaching and learning, policy and planning and staff and/or reps from students’ unions).
- those with responsibility for enhancing the student experience in their institution
- those who are interested in developing and sharing good practice in their institution
- those who would like to submit a bid for funding from UKCISA in the future
