Course content

This course addresses the needs of a range of professionals who are looking to work or currently working in an educational setting with international students at the core of its operation.

Principally this course will enable you to develop, extend and deepen your knowledge of theory and practice, whether you are working with international students in support services or international offices; in the independent sector in English language schools or public schools, or in higher/further education.

In a pervasive climate of local, national and international change, it is important to develop expertise in interpreting changing political, social and legal frameworks, alongside the cultural and psychosocial aspects of helping and advice work with a variety of international students. This course will address the central issues facing international student advisors in their day-to-day working lives.

The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) has chosen the 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.
