A presentation on the Internationalisation of the University of Glasgow given by Rachel Sandison and Chris Yeomans of the International Office, University of Glasgow, on Day 2 of the Glasgow study tour in 2016.

Each annual conference is preceded or followed by a Study Tour hosted by a top global university. Study Tours, available to members only, are two-day visits to a peer university to explore its strategic areas of research, strength and teaching expertise while soaking up the culture of the city.

In 2016 Glasgow hosted the study tour, as part of the 2016 Dublin Conference.

With a focus on University of Glasgow’s 2015-2020 internationalisation strategy, Director of Marketing, Recruitment & International Office (MaRIO) Rachel Sandison and Head of the International Office (MaRIO) Chris Yeomans lead us through the numerous aspects of the University’s international engagement, including international partnerships, transnational education, outward mobility, national and international stakeholder engagement, international recruitment and research.
