As part of the Internationalising Students’ Unions Project, NUS is working with four FE unions to develop resources to support FE unions with internationalisation.
On Monday 11 July an internationalisation workshop with Basingstoke College of Technology was held by NUS and attended by Christina Yan Zhang (NUS International Students’ Officer).
A number of issues were discussed throughout the day, including what international students in FE needed, what the sector did well and what could be improved. The different profile of international students in FE means that whilst some of the issues raised are also experienced by students in HE, there are some concerns and needs which are specific to students in FE.
The recommendations from the day will be used as a basis for the project group to create an internationalisation audit tool for FE unions.
