At GLEA we value our collaborations that have been developed across the globe. Our partners are all diverse, yet united, in sharing our commitment in researching the challenges and shaping opportunities for transforming global education.

Our collaborators proactively work with us on projects that exchange new knowledge, create ideas, build capacity and produce research results. Additionally, we have created cotutelle programmes that give PhD candidates experience of international research. For more information please visit our ‘study with us’ pages.
