International study visits: learning and employability gains for students
This presentation will highlight the perceived learning gains for students who participate in international study visits. A semi-structured online questionnaire was used to elicit the views of students who had recently returned from a series of overseas field courses in HSS and SJS. Using a before and after methodology students were asked to comment upon the development of the nine LJMU employability skills which are a key part of the University's Employability Skills Framework. Using the participants' own words, the presentation will provide a snapshot of the development of these skills and competencies. In addition, the challenges faced by students during the study visit and what problem-solving strategies they used to overcome these obstacles will also be considered. The presentation will show that well-planned, student-led and immersive international experiences deliver considerable learning gains for students.
