100 Tactics for International Student Support
University leaders looking to better support their international students must confront a range of challenges. For one, the international student population is a diverse segment unto itself, representing many different cultures and backgrounds. Time and resources are also limited, requiring difficult tradeoffs in supporting unique aspects of the international student journey.
While there's no one-size-fits-all solution, EAB has identified 100 proven tactics from across the sector. We have evaluated each on three factors:
- Ease of online delivery in a world of multimodal expectations,
- Ease of standardisation across a diverse international student body, and
- Whether home students could also benefit from this tactic.
In reviewing the list, consider where your institution might turn up the dial in developing new services—or improving the messaging for what's currently on offer.
