International Experience

International Experience

Gain exposure to different global cultures through Global Leaders Programme (GLP) international experience and learn how business operates around the world.

Our international experiences will enable you to apply the practical skills learnt through GLP activities in a new international setting. You'll also get to meet international employers, gain an understanding of the varying economic climates and make friends from all over the world.

The map below shows just a handful of the previous destinations we've taken students to as part of the Global Leaders Programme:
