The UK continues to be a top study destination for international students. In 2020/21 the UK welcomed over 600,000 international students, already surpassing the target set by the UK Government for 2030.  

Providing the best possible international student experience, and helping drive further growth and retention, is high on the agenda of many universities. Streamlining the student journey from recruitment through to enrolment and payment will not only greatly improve the student experience but will also create operational efficiencies much sought after in an increasingly resource-constrained environment.  

This summit aims to provide attendees with a greater understanding of the international student journey and how a more streamlined, flexible and transparent payment journey is essential in helping to create and maintain a world-class international student experience.  

Who Should Attend

Anyone who is involved in and/or responsible for helping set the institution’s strategy for collecting fees from international students or payers.
