International Student Experiences in the Pandemic


This time-critical research looks at the how international students in the UK have been affected by the Covid-19 lock-down, as well as experiences as lock-down restrictions are lifted. The project will document, analyse and give voice to the diverse experiences within international student communities.


The team comprised of Professor Parvati Raghuram and Dr Gunjan Sondhi.

We partnered with UKCISA to extend the reach of our survey, and our findings. (More details)


Our findings will guide a broad array of established networks from student bodies and higher education institutions to governmental departments. We endeavour to develop debate for as wide an audience as possible by engaging with academic, new, old and social media platforms.
