Centre for Global Engagement
The Centre for Global Engagement (CGE) aims to give you the international experiences needed to become a truly global graduate.
We are keen to try and give you the opportunities to enhance your employability on a global scale.
Research from the British Council and Higher Education Funding Council for England has shown that an international experience makes you more employable. Students with these experiences obtain higher starting salaries, develop the global skills employers require and achieve better career progression.
In the last four years we’ve been the 1st for international experiences for students (HESA 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18)* In 2018/19 alone we saw over 5,000 students undertake an international experiences for at least five days.
Choose from language classes, studying or working abroad, international fieldtrips, global research, cultural workshops, Summer Schools, leadership development or work experience in the UK.
Please note that international opportunities and industrial trips such as studying and working abroad or volunteering abroad may be subject to application, additional costs, meeting applicable visa requirements and/or availability.
