‘Bringing global knowledge into local programmes’ 

Monday 24th to Friday 28th October 2016

The UoB as part of its internationalisation strategy is committed to bringing international perspectives into the curriculum. The annual TIRI Global Learning Week is an opportunity to celebrate excellent teaching and research from partner institutions in Europe and beyond; and to bring an international perspective to our curriculum.
