Internationalisation is an important aspect of the work we do at UWS. Indeed, we aim for our graduates to be globally relevant with comprehensively applicable abilities, skills and behaviours (UWS Graduate attributes 2018).

Some resources that may be useful in thinking about internationalisation in relation to your practice are:
