Go International conference 2020

10 Jun 2020, 09:00 - 17:00

​The annual Go International confernece will take place on Wednesday 10 June.  Booking and further details of the day will follow in January.

UUK International's Go International programme helps implement the UK Strategy for Outward Mobility. It works with UK higher education institutions, the Erasmus+ National Agency for the UK, sector agencies, careers services, employer representatives, overseas governments and professional, statutory and regulatory bodies to achieve the strategy's objectives. 


Representing the UK higher education sector collectively, Go International works to increase participation in outward student mobility by:  

  • providing an annual overview of mobility data and trends among UK participants, including the type and length of mobility being accessed, the demographics of participation and the most common destinations

  • supporting higher education staff to promote and deliver outward mobility programmes through a range of professional development events around the UK and an annual conference

  • delivering a diverse programme of research in collaboration with other sector agencies, providing quantitative and qualitative evidence of the benefits of mobility to UK higher education students

  • sharing knowledge and good practice across the sector through a biannual mobility network, involving over 70 higher education institutions and related organisations

Universities UK International's Go International: Stand Out campaign is designed to help the sector to deliver on our national target for outward student mobility: 

'to double the percentage of UK-domiciled, full-time, first degree, undergraduate students who have an international placement as part of their university programme by 2020.'

UUKi is convening a series of activities from 2017 to 2020 to support universities in meeting the national target. As a first step, UUKi encourages universities, and other organisations, to sign up to the campaign charter and to submit a pledge to help boost and broaden UK outward student mobility.
