Global Talent Programme

Our innovative, new Global Talent Programme (GTP) enables you to develop future-ready skills that will open up opportunities around the world.

You’ll be encouraged to think and act locally, nationally and internationally, nurturing the mindset – and heartset – to benefit from global possibilities.

GTP in brief

  1. Develop your understanding of key global economic, environmental and societal themes – and the concept of global talent.
  2. Experience international contexts through global communities and campus events.
  3. Build your future-proof global skillset through immersion in international practice.
  4. Apply an international mindset, heartset and skillset to deliver global solutions.
  5. Demonstrate global impact through practical experience.

These elements are underpinned by a portfolio of extra-curricular activities focused on: Global Awareness; Sports, Arts, Communities and Culture; Personal and Professional Development and Work Experience; Advanced Skills; and Innovation and Impact.

Completion of the GTP leads to our Global Talent Awards – tailored to undergraduate, postgraduate and postgraduate research students.
