Is your institution committed to sending more UK students abroad as part of their university experience? How do other institutions and other countries approach this? What does the latest data tell us about who is going abroad? And how can we be more ambitious as a sector? The 2015 Go International conference explores the Outward Student Mobility landscape, using experts from the UK and overseas.  By the end of this conference delegates will have additional insight into the latest trends to help them develop their outward mobility strategies.  The Conference will also provide opportunities for knowledge-sharing and networking with other delegates, all at the convenient setting of the Universities UK building in central London.
