ICOS/USI International Student Forum - Dublin, 14th November 2012
The Union of Students in Ireland (USI) and the Irish Council for International Students (ICOS) hosted a forum for international students Wednesday, November 14, in central Dublin.
This event allowed students from a variety of countries and Higher Education Institutions to discuss issues of importance to their studies and overall experience in Ireland. The focus for the forum was 'Uniting Students', exploring the integration of international students academically and socially both on campus and in the community.
To include the views of those unable to attend, ICOS and USI are also gathering feedback from international students via short survey until the end of November 2012.
A report on the forum and survey findings will be circulated to all relevant stakeholders, including HEIs, to inform policy makers and service providers regarding possible improvements to provision for international students in the future.
