Global Engagement Week

Events are taking place throughout the week for both staff and students to get involved in and the food courts will be serving up a different regional delicacy every day.

Jeanne Keay, Pro Vice-Chancellor: Global Engagement said: “Our Strategy highlights our commitment to developing a community of staff who are globally engaged and a student body who are globally engaged through their programmes and extra-curricular opportunities and on graduating are prepared for living and working in a global society.

“We have some really exciting events happening this week, from CV Writing for Global Employability through to Global Music Night.”
