The Significance of International Student Mobility in Students’ Strategies at Third Level in Ireland

by Aline Courtois

Lia Fail Graphic The Significance of International Student Mobility in Students’ Strategies at Third Level in Ireland is a disccusion paper prepared by Dr Aline Courtois who was NUI Dr Garret FitzGerald Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Social Sciences from 2014-2016.

This study examines outgoing student mobility and demonstrates that it brings a number of benefits at individual, institutional, regional and national levels. The majority of students reported having a positive experience with many reporting increased self-confidence, and automy, as well as improved intercultural and interpersonal skills. However, Dr Courtois’s research found that many students reported differing views on the ‘quality’ – particularly the academic quality – of their time spent abroad. There were significant findings on such factors as the levels of institutional support available to outgoing students and also the cost barriers of an additional year abroad as part of a degree programme.

The National University of Ireland held a seminar on 5 December 2017 in the College of Anaesthetists of Ireland to launch the publication.
