The British Council and DAAD have in partnership commissioned research to gain a greater understanding of the underlying rationales for 11 countries to take very different approaches to encouraging their domestic students to undertake an international study experience. The research broadens our understanding of the policies, scope, mechanisms, objectives and (perceived) impact of international student mobility schemes.
Following a presentation of the approach to the research, and the main messages and implications from it, will be a chaired panel discussion addressing questions such as:
- What has been learnt by countries that have successfully funded large scale outward mobility programmes?
- What can other developed nations learn from these countries which support their students to study abroad?
- What can developing countries, looking to devise their own outward mobility programme take from this research?
