Join us for the annual EUA Autumn best practice workshop, this year hosted by Coventry University.

As well as providing the usual opportunities to meet and network with colleagues, the workshop will include sessions on:

▶ Strategies to increase the number of students going abroad on short-term experiences;

▶ Embedding short-term mobility opportunities into TNE projects;

▶ Creating summer schools that add value to your portfolio of international enhancement opportunities;

▶ Best practice in ensuring travel safety  


▶ An update on Brexit and the potential impact on international activity.

The workshop will provide you with creative ideas, contacts and a toolkit ultimately to embed short-term mobility opportunities into your internationalisation offer to students.
