Generating placements overseas for UK students

The recent report Global Graduates into Global Leaders focuses on the need for UK graduates to work across national borders, manage complex international and intercultural relationships and understand global aspects of the world of work. The startling figure in the report - that the UK is ranked only 34th for external student mobility - serves as a wake-up call for the UK economy.

Here, members of the AGCAS Placement and Work-based Learning Task Group offer their perspectives on how to drive the number of UK students going overseas by first increasing the number of international work and study placements available to them.

AGCAS members who have registered with this website and signed in can download the task group's report below.
