Following the results of the International Student Experience Survey in July, it became clear that more needs to be done to ensure international students are provided with accurate information prior to arrival into the UK/UCLan and consistent communication throughout their studies to mitigate the issues faced. I understand that not all international students may have had the opportunity to fill out the survey at the time or feel comfortable expressing their issues via a survey.
On 11th November 4pm-6pm, I hosted an International Students Get Together to discuss key issues and hot food was served.
We had students from a variety of countries engage in the event discussing their highlights and challenges on 3 key topics:
- Welcome and Induction
- Academic Support
- Sense of Belonging and Community
We will now collate all of the responses along with the International Student Experience Survey and draw on recommendations for the University and Students' Union to implement.
