Staffordshire University International Pledge

In International

In International

Staffordshire University has pledged its support to a national campaign to increase opportunities for its students to 'Go International’.

International placements are a great opportunity for students and staff to develop new skills and gain knowledge. This can be life changing and key to personal and professional success. Bringing a global perspective to the University and local employers will help them grow and prosper.

The four guiding principles of the campaign charter are to:

  • Increase the percentage of UK students who study, work or volunteer abroad as part of their higher education programme

  • Promote the value of study, work and volunteering abroad

  • Enhance the accessibility of studying, working and volunteering abroad

  • Improve the collection and reporting of data on study, work and volunteering abroad

For more information see go international STANDOUT.

Staffordshire University has pledged to:

  1. Make globalisation and student social mobility an institutional priority by making it a focus of staff conferences and workshops.

  1. Develop stronger alliances through our International Development Plan, to provide international opportunities for staff, students and graduates with particular focus on South East Asia, Vietnam, China, Middle East and South America. 

  1. Deliver a ‘connected’ student experience which aims to prepare graduates for a global workforce. 

  1. Expand our international reach through the recruitment of students from diverse global backgrounds. 

  1. Internationalise our curriculum and support student mobility through placement opportunities and appropriate student support.

  1. Raise the visibility of international opportunities through campaigns such as Go International: Stand Out.
