International Student Lifecycle Resources bank

The (UK) Higher Education Academy has put together an International Student Lifecycle Resources bank which has organised links and material around the phases:
1. Pre-arrival and pre-sessional support [of students]
2. Induction [of students]
3. Teaching & Learning in the 'classroom' [this is the biggest section]
4. Life outside the 'classroom'
5. Employability & next steps
It is meant for teaching faculty and anyone else dealing with students from outside their home country (obviously, being a British resource, "international" students are those from outside the UK, and in particular, I would say, those from outside the European Union). Some of the pages are rather long and unwieldy (e.g. the "induction" page), but there is a lot of useful material.
