Global Office

The newly established Global Office is responsible for managing strategic, multi-dimensional partnerships; providing co-ordinated support for key Global activities which are cross-institution and which enhance student experience, academic reputation and research connectivity internationally; and supporting the alignment of Global services to ensure a consistent approach and a seamless service for academics, students and external stakeholders.

The Global Office manages a wide range of Study Abroad, collaborative programmes, and Global Joint PhDs, and the associated student experience. The Global Office also manages the business of the University’s International Committee and takes forward projects and initiatives identified by the Committee in support of the Internationalisation Strategy.

The Office works closely with other Units under the Global banner (Admissions, Careers, Corporate Communications, Development and the International Education Institute), as well as the Principal’s Office, Schools, Registry, and Research and Innovation Services.

The Global Office is managed by Samantha Lister (Director).
