Global engagement

Intercultural skills are an invaluable asset for you to be able to engage successfully in today’s global economy. You need skills that help you to understand and adapt to differing cultural backgrounds, values and corporate working styles. Through studying and working abroad during your course of study in the faculty, you will have the opportunity to develop yourself personally, academically and professionally.

See below for further information about global engagement opportunities and hear directly from our students as they talk about their own experiences.
