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.
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.
