Attracting International Students: Equitable services and support, campus cohesion and community engagement

This research report investigates how advancing equality and diversity can support the internationalisation agenda. With clear recommendations, case studies and feedback from staff and student interviews held at six Scottish institutions, the research suggests ways to evolve institutional culture to attract and support international students, and to consolidate relationships with the local community.

The research focuses on: equity of support and professional services between international and UK students; campus cohesion - the relationship between international and UK students, between staff and international students, and the ways in which institutions support good relations; and community engagement - how international students engage with local communities and how institutions encourage this.

Author(s): A team from the Centre for Education for Racial Equality in Scotland (CERES), The University of Edinburgh, and the Centre for Remote and Rural Studies, University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI), led by Dr Rowena Arshad and Dr Philomena de Lima.
