This course addresses the needs of a range of professionals who are looking to work or currently working in an educational setting with international students at the core of its operation.
Principally this course will enable you to develop, extend and deepen your knowledge of theory and practice, whether you are working with international students in support services or international offices; in the independent sector in English language schools or public schools, or in higher/further education.
