Global Engagement works to develop international partnerships which support the University's strategic priorities in research and mobility. We organise delegations and workshops to explore opportunities for collaboration with our partners, provide ongoing liaison and relationship support, and develop initiatives aligned to our shared priority areas.

International agreements

Global Engagement supports the University’s strategic development, establishment, monitoring, and review of a defined class of agreements with international institutions.  These agreements formally document the University’s relationships with international partners with the objective of enhancing mutual learning, teaching, research, and innovation outcomes. We provide ongoing advice on policy and procedures for the establishment and renewal of international agreements, managing all aspects of the international agreements cycle.

You can find out more about the agreements process, and view the agreements database, on the International Agreements staff resource page.
