Internationalising Student Support

Erasmus Staff Exchange Week- 15-19 May 2017

The Internationalising Student Support staff exchange event is intended for professional staff working in the field of student support and administration responding to the needs of international exchange students. During the week we will showcase services and initiatives which have been developed at Sheffield Hallam University to respond to a growing number of international students. Participants are expected to share their experiences and practice of supporting international exchange students so we can all learn from each other’s work.

We will cover a wide range of areas including

• Accommodation

• Student Wellbeing

• Social transitions support

• Library & study support

• Facilities and Catering

The programme will also include social activities such as a local walk and a trip to Chatsworth House, a local tourist attraction.

There is a programme fee of £120 per participant which includes a farewell dinner, four lunches, and the social activities. Accommodation is not included in the participation fee
