The ‘international student experience’ in 2021

The ‘international student experience’ in 2021

Alina Schartner, ECLS

In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, international students are a particularly vulnerable group. Social distancing measures, campus closures, national lockdowns, and travel restrictions aggravate an already challenging life transition, and have a potentially detrimental effect on the ‘international student experience’. Inherent to this experience are academic, psychological and sociocultural adjustments. This project explores these adjustments, from the students’ perspective, in the context of a global health emergency.

You can read the project report which presents the key findings from a survey of over 300 international students who undertook degree programmes at UK universities in the academic year 2020-2021.
