International Strategy Group

The School prides itself on the provision of exciting opportunities for staff and students via an array of international exchanges.

These exchanges are facilitated by the International Strategy Group, a team of staff from the School’s academic, administration, clinical colleagues and user and carer groups, who work together to ensure that your experience is well planned, supported and structured. For those first time travellers it is also to make sure you truly have the opportunity of a lifetime.

The role of the International Strategy group is to support students and staff wishing to undertake an international clinical placement or teacher mobility either here in Salford (for incoming Erasmus Students, Academics and Administration Staff) or in one of our Partner Institutions.

The group is led by Angela Cotton (International Lead), other members include:
