Gone International: the value of mobility

This second Gone International study, from the UK HE International Unit's Go International team, examines the profile and outcomes of UK-domiciled, first degree, mobile students who graduated in 2013/14, responded to the Destination of Leavers in Higher Education survey, and undertook a period of mobility abroad. It explores who goes abroad (gender, subject, ethnicity, socioeconomic background), where they go, and what they do after they graduate (academic and employment outcomes).
