UK Students: Go Abroad, Stand Out

VU International News and Reviews No. 101 November 20 2017

November 2017

Universities UK International (UUKi) has launched a campaign Go International: Stand Out on November 2nd to address the fact that the UK lags behind the rest of the world in the percentage of students who have international experiences. Over 50 UK universities (not listed, alas) have already signed up to the campaign, which intends to raise the percentage of students having a study, work or volunteer experience abroad from the current 6,6 to 13% by 2020. In its earlier Gone International report (see VU IN&R 97), UUKi had already demonstrated the positive employment effect of international experience, especially for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
