International Students in Scottish Higher Education: Institutional Settings and Individual Life Projects and Identity Change

The project funded through the Adam Smith Foundation Seedcorn Fund with Marta Moskal as PI aims to develop a better understanding of the driving forces and resources of these students’ international migration to Scotland and to explore how their identities are transformed by their experiences in Scotland. Moreover, the research will examine the role of Scottish universities to develop strength among students in terms of their strategic positioning within the global labour market as well as building a moral sense of global solidarity.

Portfolio of Integration (POI) Project

This Comenius multilateral project within the EC's LLP involved five participating countries (Greece, Italy, Poland, Turkey and the UK).

The main aims of the Portfolio of Integration (POI) project were to test and validate the Notebook of Integration in different national contexts and to adapt the particular content to such contexts. The Notebook itself is an observational and evaluative toolkit originally developed by Oxfam Italia to enhance teachers’ knowledge skills and pedagogy in order to improve the educational integration of migrant/new arrival school students.
