8 Research Findings:

9 Research Further Research into Employability: Ask returning students about their employability experience on their return to the US job market Does the length of programme affect the employability factor? Contact students about their success or lack of success – their experience and their feelings What makes UK degrees more/ less attractive for Americans How long did it take to get their first job? Does it facilitate faster promotion Does the UK degree benefit over the long term of a career – sample alumni at different stages in their career Employers thoughts on credential evaluation agencies Run this in Canada - Priority industries for skill gaps

10 Research Professional degree tracking law, engineering, medicine Accreditation, associations Changes in demographics Non- white female populations – create affinity Can we make this connection at the CC level? Thoughts on SA summer schools What kind of programmes What will they pay What credit transfer Social programme How to compete with the US faculty led and island programmes

11 Research Staff mobility Funding for academic staff – outside current funding models What drives staff mobility Does staff mobility facilitate partnerships Teaching/ research collaborations

18 Top 30 UK institutions for receiving Americans What matters to Americans: Name brand Location Marketing to Americans and programmes specifically for them (not just international students generally) Partnership agreements Rapid Communication

26 Federal Aid Federal Aid and Student Loans – Administrative rules by the DoE Amendments were made to the regulatory language regarding the auditing process for Foreign Schools adding administrative compliance costs to institutions These rules go into affect on the 1 st of July 2011 > $10M = Annual US GAAP Audit Process $10M < $3M = every three years (actually two out of three years) Incentive Compensation Regulatory Language in §668.14(b)(22)(i) p Section (b)(22) does not prohibit institutions from providing any commission, bonus, or incentive payment to students who are referrals. Therefore, an individual who is referred to an institution should be able to receive whatever scholarship money or tuition assistance that he or she may otherwise be eligible to receive without violating the HEA. The HEA does not prohibit advertising and marketing activities by a third party, as long as payment to the third party is based on those who click and is not based in any part, directly or indirectly, on the number of individuals who enrol or are awarded financial aid; therefore, the regulatory language would not prohibit such click-through payments.
