The United States is a leader in international education. One in ten U.S. undergraduates study abroad before graduating, and the U.S. study abroad industry is professional, with many international education staff attaining postgraduate qualifications in international education/study abroad before securing even an entry-level position.

Come and meet a group of American study abroad professionals (who are in New Zealand to learn more about the New Zealand offering) for an interactive roundtable to gain first-hand insights from their experience of working within the profession.

You will:

  • Explore how they work with stakeholders across their campus to increase both numbers and the diversity of the students going offshore (sex, ethnicity, and programme of study)
  • Discuss how the overarching goals of U.S. study abroad filter down to their campus, and
  • Learn about how they work with students who have expectations of high levels of support.
