Internatio-nalisation Masterclass

Regents University, London. April 5th 2019

What? Internationalisation Masterclass

Where? Regents University, London

When? 9:45am to 4pm, 5th April, 2019.

How much? FREE for members (because we love you so!) £50 for non-members.

As it stands, by the time we sit down for our April Masterclass the UK will have already left the European Union, but our students will still want to access the global graduate jobs market. Join us at the beautiful Regent's campus to discuss all things Internationalisation. 


As always this masterclass is FREE for ALL staff of ALL member institutions, so bring your team, your international office and Debbie from downstairs that doesn't get out much, to learn not only the best practices around getting your students working abroad, but also instilling global values in your UK placements.

It’ll be a relaxed, but activity-focused day, with a networking lunch and plenty of coffee breaks for you to catch up with your peers from across the UK and meet new PlaceNet members.
