Teaching International Students

Date posted: 15/02/2010

In January 2009 the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA), with funding from the Prime Minister's Initiative (PMI), received approval to establish a national initiative for Teaching International Students. Following a period of sector-wide consultation UKCISA awarded funding to the Higher Education Academy to deliver the Teaching International Students project by July 2011.


The Teaching International Students project aims to make a major contribution to strengthening the UK international student experience - and by extension the international horizons of all students in the UK. This will be achieved by:

  • Establishing a repository of national and international research on teaching and learning of international students, using the Academy's EvidenceNet facility;
  • Identifying and disseminating information and guidance about teaching and learning of international students;
  • Providing guidance on staff development strategies relating to teaching and learning of international students via events, guidance materials and EvidenceNet;
  • Raising the profile of the importance of learning and teaching of international students.

Project Team
The Teaching International Students project is being directed by Dr Janette Ryan and Jude Carroll. There are other members of the team based in the Academy's Subject Centres and at the York office.
