Internationalising student support – staff development week for university partners

Monday 20 – Friday 20 May, 2019

The staff exchange event is intended for professional staff working in the field of student support and administration, particularly those responding to the needs of international exchange students.

During the week we will showcase services and initiatives which have been developed at Sheffield Hallam University to respond to a growing number of international students, exchange students and study abroad students. Participants are expected to share their experiences and practice of supporting international exchange students so we can all learn from each other’s work.

We will cover a wide range of areas including

  • Accommodation
  • Student Wellbeing
  • Student welcome and orientation
  • Social transitions support
  •  Library & study support
  • Dealing with crises and hardship

The full programme is available here 

There is a programme fee of £150 per participant which also includes four lunches, a farewell dinner, social activities, and a trip to Chatsworth House, a local tourist attraction. Accommodation is not included in the participation fee.
