Course content

The Postgraduate Certificate International Student Advice and Support addresses the needs of a range of professionals who work or seek employment in educational settings where the recruitment and personal, academic and professional support of international students is core business.

Principally this programme will enable individuals working with international students (for example in student support services and international offices) in the independent sector ( e.g. English Language Schools, Public Schools), and in higher and further education to systematically develop, extend and deepen their knowledge of both theory and practice. In a pervasive climate of local, national and international change, such professionals require expertise in interpreting changing political, social and legal frameworks, alongside the cultural and psycho-social aspects of helping and advice work with a variety of international students. This programme will address the central issues facing international student advisors in their day-to-day working lives.

The UK Council for International Students Affairs (UKCISA) has chosen the University of Nottinghams School of Education, with its expertise in counselling and international education, as their preferred institution to deliver this innovative qualification for professionals working in the sector.
