An international student’s first experiences of the UK and your institution are crucial. As well as offering a welcome, orientation offers a basis for successful adaptation to life as a student at your institution and is all the more effective if it reflects its true ethos. This course is highly participative.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- clarify what their orientation programme is aiming to achieve
- identify resources needed and discuss ways of obtaining them
- experience the various stages involved in planning an event
- identify what needs to be included in a successful orientation programme
This course is suitable for:
those who have recently taken responsibility for, or a key role in, organising their institution’s orientation programme. The course might also be useful for more experienced staff who may wish to consolidate their experience and share their own ideas and strategies.
