The 2025 International Strategy commits the University to become fully internationally engaged through the enhancement of the student experience on campus and beyond. Critical to this work is developing a structured on-campus internationalisation programme that provides global learning opportunities for University of Sussex students.

They will be supported by the Global Engagement team in Professional Services. The post-holder will work collaboratively alongside the Head of Global Programmes to proactively engage with the academic community; to drive forward IAH opportunities within Schools; to increase internationalisation within learning environments, embedding the programme into curricular and non-curricular programme of opportunities. 

The funding to support this post will be made available through Global Engagement to support the development of Internationalisation at Home initiatives. The role holder’s substantive position will be as a faculty member of their school. Time allocation for this 0.2 FTE position will be agreed with the Head of School and DPVC International
