Abstract

Similarly to other universities within the UK, Queen's has sought to develop its international profile in recent years, employing a range of approaches including the enhancement of international recruitment activities, developing degree courses which are aligned to global challenges and employment sectors, and establishing partnerships with international organisations within the education and industrial sectors. Indeed, Queen's has established a partnership with China Medical University, located in Shenyang, China, which centres around the operation of a International Branch Campus (IBC), and which delivers a number of undergraduate Queen's degrees, in their entirety, within a remote centre. At present, approximately 300 students are undertaking study within this centre, with course content and training being delivered collaboratively by academic staff from both partner universities.
Despite the facilitation of delivery of core course content, the nature of this IBC is as such that the provision of Queen's portfolio of student support services is made difficult, due to the absence of both the required physical estate and appropriate staff who have expertise within these particular areas, due to the geographical location of the campus. A notable example of this relates to the support provided to students by Queen's Student Guidance Centre directorate, and perhaps most notably, the Careers, Employability, and Skills office within this unit. The delivery of such complementary support is recognised as being critical in ensuring that students are able to successfully enter employment on completion of their degree, in addition to being fully prepared for various associated challenges, and as such, the paucity of this support within the remote campus may lead to issues in relation to the employability of students who are receiving their degree-level education within this centre.
