Rethinking international students: reaching unity in diversity

There is no doubt that higher education (HE) has entered an era of change. It is widely believed that international students require special attention and support. However, recent trends, such as the world-wide massification of HE, the growing use of information technologies in teaching and ongoing globalisation of HE result in increasingly diverse student populations. Though traditionally, student populations have been treated as homogenous, they have never been such. In today’s blog post, the third in the summer Forum series, the authors explore why it is so important that universities stop ignoring the diversity of student community.

Trend of decentralised international student support

Nowadays universities do not need to be convinced that their student support services need to cater to international students as well as domestic ones. However, the support system that exists depends on both external and internal factors. A lot is shaped by context: national regulation, the predominant language(s) in the country, the changing demands of the job market; but also and just as importantly, the university’s development strategy.


Challenges of internationalising higher education

The beginning of the 21st century has seen a great increase in mobility and migration – both voluntary and forced by external circumstances. These developments have increased the demand for intercultural skills and innovative approaches and to keep up with them higher education institutions need to do all they can to help ready their graduates for coming global challenges.
