An introduction to international student admissions - Manchester - 02/06/2020

A new Training Day for 2020 which has been designed for those who are at the start of their career in international admissions.

Experts in international education, credential evaluation, immigration compliance, English language proficiency and student engagement will share their thoughts and expertise to ensure that delegates understand the important elements of best practice in international student admissions and how these can be applied. 

This newly developed Training Day provides a concentrated and thorough introduction to key education systems and qualifications will give you an essential grounding in commonly encountered qualifications.

In addition delegates will understand how to develop a systematic approach to the evaluation of overseas qualifications, identifying the most able students and making an offer.

English language proficiency is a key issue in international admissions and the day includes an introduction to the different tests, proficiency levels for admissions and how to use test scores in selecting students from overseas.

Supporting international applicants through their application is fundamental part of the duty of care that universities and colleges provide to international students.  We will examine the common issues when engaging with international applicants and explore ways of overcoming some of the key difficulties.

Delegates will also receive best practice tips in how to meet the Home Office’s Tier 4 compliance requirements.

Note: There will be practical exercises on the day. We will provide a limited amount of devices that will be shared among the delegates. If it’s not a problem for you to bring your own device, that would be helpful (tablet, laptop, apple book, etc.).
