Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


Higher Education institutions throughout the world are developing innovative responses to demands from employers for graduates to demonstrate the necessary attributes required to gain employment within an increasingly international and intercultural context. The majority of HEIs offer a wealth of cultural exchange programmes, and a number of optional international visits as part of undergraduate programmes. Participation in such initiatives,however, is often limited to students with the necessary economic means, and the social and cultural confidence.
This paper presents the findings of three case studies within a Faculty of Creative Industries at a regional UK university. Each project was developed in response to the Higher Education Academy Strategic Enhancement Project 2014-15. The studies each present innovative ways in which teams redeveloped the curriculum in order to provide an international learning experience for the benefit of all learners, regardless of their economic, social and cultural background.
