The workshop will provide an opportunity to share good practice and to learn from the experience of colleagues in different parts of the university.  The session will consider some of the common experiences that international students face and include feedback from past/present international students. The session will explore issues around attracting good international candidates. The workshop will also be an opportunity to discuss specific issues supervisors have with supervising international students.
