International student community – how do we overcome the barriers and enable our students to thrive?
Our international student community are diverse, brilliant and bring a wealth of culture to LJMU. Following some really engaging JMSU led events and campaigns, we have been able to gain some useful insight that will help colleagues and service teams support and communicate with our international students. In some ways this session will be a helpful guide based on student feedback from the International Student community throughout this academic year which will include Marie’s Winter Break and Gaby’s Nationalities Connected Week.
The session will cover some examples of great activities and initiatives that have received both strong engagement and positive feedback. We will offer some time to discuss and explore our guidance further along with some useful tips specifically aimed at creating the most effective dialogue with our diverse international student community from an evidence based approach. We will cover what we have learned and will look to offer some specific areas where we believe LJMU could improve.
Only LJMU Staff and Students have access to this resource.
