    Not just for home students Not just for home students: are your services truly international?

    This professional development event for Student Services leaders in higher education explores how to support and engage your international students in a meaningful way. This is an opportunity to think about designing and developing your services to be more insightful and nuanced for this diverse group of students, rather than simply tweaking services intended for home students.

    Join us to discuss:

    • Understanding our international students – who are they? What are their different needs? How do their needs intersect? What trends should we be aware of? Let’s break apart the idea of ‘international students’ as all the same.
    • How to be more open and aware, developing our cultural competencies to engage these students more effectively.
    • Doing Student Services differently – not just the traditional offer to home students, and ensuring that our services don’t create inadvertent barriers for international students.

    This event is for managers and directors with responsibility for service design and delivery for international students.

    The event is led by AMOSSHE Executive Members Paul Rossi (University of the Arts London) and Ravteg Singh Dhesi (The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust).

    Reduced fee places available to encourage participation

    We want colleagues from across the higher education student support sector to take part in our National Conference 2024, including those who have less opportunity to engage with an event of this kind. We want to help with the professional development of colleagues who are:

    • Starting on their Student Services leadership career (for example, early career professionals).
    • Working in circumstances that limit their opportunities for professional development (for example, those from small and specialist organisations where resources for professional development are tight).
    • From diverse backgrounds, who want to bring their perspectives and insights to the conference conversations and contribute to our network of Student Services leaders.

    Two residential places are available at a reduced fee of £625 each for colleagues working in higher education support roles who might otherwise find it difficult to attend.

    The reduced fee places are for all three days of the conference, and include accommodation at the conference venue, all meals and access to the evening events. Travel to and from the conference isn’t included, so you’ll need to arrange and pay for this yourself.

    In return for the reduced fee place, we’ll ask you to write a short article about what you learned at the conference, the value of attending to your professional development, and how others might benefit by taking part. We’ll publish your article on our website.

    Watch this space for more information about how to apply for one of the reduced fee places.
