International partnerships

Executive missions

The University arranges a number of executive visits annually to strengthen links with existing partners and build new strategic collaborations.

Executive visits are led by a member of the Unversity Executive Group, who is normally joined by a small delegation of faculty and professional services staff.

Visits also keep staff informed of regional higher education policy developments, and raise the profile of the University in the region, highlighting strengths in teaching and research. They often incorporate meetings with overseas representatives or regional office staff and events to engage with our international alumni and community.
