Abstract

The workshop will expose participants to different types of student support and provides the different aspects of student support at different stages of international students’ experience. There will be a brief overview of emerging good practices in student support, followed by examples of the different aspects of student support provided by Edinburgh Napier and Sheffield Hallam Universities, and how the different structures of the Universities have led to different ways of addressing the student support issues. Participants will be given examples of peer support together with student views on preferred support strategies. Participants will be asked to consider the examples in view of their own context and
suggest ways in which peer support could be used to enhance student experience. There will be a brief overview of future developments of student support in both universities and an opportunity for the participants to share their views and examples of peer support as a way of enhancing student experience.
