UKCISA – We Are International Student Charter


I had the pleasure of attending and speaking at the UKCISA conference last week in Newcastle, it was fantastic to meet so many passionate and friendly people in one place.


At the conference, we saw the launch of the #WeAreInternational Student Charter.


The #WeAreInternational Student Charter is a student-led document, written by UKCISA’s #WeAreInternational Student Ambassadors and developed with the input of students and staff from across the international education sector in the UK.


The Charter provides guidance on the fundamental principles for delivering a world-class international student experience, from pre-arrival to post-graduation.


We are glad to see there are specific parts of the charter asking universities to:

  • Monitor and evaluate existing available support and provision for international students on an ongoing basis

  • Make available targeted support for international students in every area of the student experience

As we cover this within our Code of Practice, having a specific area that asks universities to look at the specific needs of International Students, covering Pre Arrival, right through their student experience from registering with the NHS, to support throughout the holidays.
