In 2011, the English Language Teaching Unit at the University of Leicester organised an event focusing on how to improve the experience international students have when studying at high education institutions in the UK. The PIM (Professional Interest Meeting) was part of the BALEAP calendar of events and counted on presentations from a number of academics and EAP tutors from different universities across the country.
The interested it generated at the time and the quality of the presentations made some of us think that perhaps there would be space for an academic publication that could serve as a means of discussing and sharing ideas in the field. This idea is now materialising in the form of the International Student Experience Journal (ISEJ) .
The ISEJ is a peer-reviewed online publication for those involved in the field of researching, teaching and providing services to international students in higher education in the UK and other English speaking countries. The Journal links the everyday concerns of university staff including academics, researchers and EAP practitioners with insights gained from related academic disciplines such as applied linguistics, education, psychology, and sociology.
