International Student Experience in Higher Education
28 Apr 2009
6th Annual Conference. Held at Cavendish Conference Centre, London

Recruitment and retention of international students play an important role in the multiculturalism of UK universities. However, for UK institutions to become truly international and engaged in a globalised higher education sector, considerations have to go beyond attracting international students and take into account more complex challenges that will shape their experience in the UK.
