Network meetings provide a forum for participants to share best practice, to discuss specific issues, challenges and emerging opportunities, and help to ensure that Universities UK International accurately reflects UK universities' priorities in relation to specific world regions and thematic areas of activity.
Our regional networks typically meet twice a year. Between meetings participants receive email updates providing information and advice on specific issues, together with details of new opportunities and invitations to take part in occasional surveys and consultations.
The regional networks are open to UK university staff working in internationalisation, partnership, recruitment and related international functions focusing on each network's region. We also encourage participation from international directors, regional managers, international officers, and pro-vice-chancellors for internationalisation. Register your interest here.
