International relations

We are the main point of contact for questions about international relations and collaboration with the University and its academies.

About us

Our team coordinates international collaboration, for example networks, exchange programmes and bilateral agreements. We support educational development through international co-operation.

If you are planning to apply for an exchange period either as a student, a teacher or a member of staff, please contact your home institution’s international relations staff first.

To discuss collaboration possibilities with us, please find the contact details for the relevant staff at our academies below.
