‌Internationalisation courses for staff

Date: tbc
Location: University of York Campus
Fees: tbc
Theme: Dealing with the challenge of internationalisation in higher education (HE)
‌‌Our internationalisation programme aims to help academic and administrative staff from our partner universities deal with the challenge of internationalisation in higher education (HE).‌

It will help to develop:

  • An understanding of current issues within HE in the UK, with a particular focus on the issue of internationalisation. As an international university, we have lots of insight and experience to share in this area.
  • An international ethos through a genuine, balanced and equal exchange with York staff and students.
  • Skills required in an internationalised university.

The course includes the following components:

1. Discussion
This will be based on group readings and discussion in the areas of HE in the UK, internationalisation of HE, and Internationalisation as it effects specific group members.

2. Communication workshops
These will be practical sessions on the international interactions that the participants are involved in and aim to develop the skills that they need. These sessions will also serve to prepare and reflect on the work shadowing and interview opportunities.

3. Work shadowing/interviews
Shadowing, discussion and interviews will take place with a range of University staff members related to the participants’ field of work and expressed interests.

The focus is very much on practical outcomes and how participants can effect and implement change.

Come to the beautiful historic city of York to share and hone your ideas for practical outcomes and dissemination.

This programme will help participants to explore issues of internationalisation, discuss best practice and develop ideas for how to disseminate information about new internationally-focused initiatives. Exclusively for York’s partner universities, this programme allows you to:

  • Spend time at York, a top global university
  • Mix with international professionals facing the same issues as you
  • Form new partnerships in a focussed environment
  • Develop your skills and professional understanding

Places are limited to 15 so book early to secure participation. We will consider applications from up to three members of staff from the same university.

We can also provide this programme at any time of year for closed groups of 10 participants or more.

Guideline costs: tuition fees £546 per week per participant, accommodation from £50 per night.
