Supporting and Enhancing the Experience of International Students in the UK

This guide, produced by the QAA, examines how HE providers can support international students studying in the UK and enhance their experience. It is aimed at all staff with responsibility for international students or who engage with them, including student advisers, international officers, student services managers and careers advisers. 

The guide focuses on aspects of the student journey that may be particular to international students who come to the UK to study or where particular considerations might apply. It is intended to facilitate the sharing of good practice among HE providers, while recognising their diversity and autonomy.

In particular, it has been developed with a view to assisting HE providers in developing and maintaining an inclusive environment for international students, and meeting the challenges and opportunities associated with an increasingly international student body.

The guide is structured around the typical student journey and is divided into three sections, which relate to: 

• marketing, selection and admission;
• arrival, orientation and induction;
• learning, teaching, and enabling student development and achievement.

The guide was produced following a review of the previous version published in 2012 as International Students Studying in the UK - Guidance for UK Higher Education Providers. As part of the review, AGCAS members were invited to contribute to an official AGCAS response.
