Understanding and reducing systemic barriers to outbound student mobility

This project seeks to test approaches for reducing the obstacles to studying abroad, while also attempting to increase access and equity in participation. The project was deployed in two distinct steps. First, a survey was conducted to collect data from students who have studied abroad, who interrupted their mobility project, or who have never travelled to another country as part of their studies. Second, focus groups were organized to address certain questions in greater detail. The large amount of information gathered in this way will serve as the basis of an analysis that will allow UQAM to better understand obstacles to mobility and support the development of a strategy aimed at facilitating study experiences abroad.
