Supporting international students

sparqs and NUS Scotland have created a training package about supporting international students to engage with their learning experience.

The package is aimed at institutional staff with responsibility for international students and at students' association staff and officers. It is a comprehensive resource that provides information and enables institutions and students' associations to improve support for international students and enhance their experience

The training consists of four modules and you can download all the relevant materials below. The downloads include everything necessary to deliver training sessions, including tutor notes, workbooks, evaluations, PowerPoint slides, and guidance on tailoring information.

Module 1: General Information and Introduction

Module 2: The International Student Lifecycle

Module 3: Plagiarism

Module 4: International Students and the Quality Enhancement Framework

The training forms part of a toolkit developed by NUS Scotland which is available in DVD format. To obtain a copy of the DVD or to find out more about these resources, please contact NUS Scotland.
