About us

Over the past few years, the University has developed international academic partnerships with institutions around the world, the majority of these providing student mobility for overseas study. Recently the adopted approach to international partnerships has begun to focus more on the development of strategic partnerships for programme delivery outside of the UK.

In line with the University vision and strategic international priorities, the international partnerships team is responsible for supporting the development and management of the University's international strategic partners.  The team is responsible for:

  1. Supporting the development and management of strategic partnerships
  2. Collecting, analysing and disseminating information to support decision making within the University
  3. Providing information to individual members of staff seeking to develop international partnerships of various types
  4. Supporting international visitors.
