Meet our Global Officers

Global Officers Leadership Development programme

Quotation

Through the GOLD programme I hope to further develop my cultural sensitivity, think about internationalisation efforts on a more practical level, as well as work with other students and staff who also value diverse communities and what they teach us.

Quotation

Being at university has made me realise how international the world is becoming and how important it is to have these global skills that are taught in the programme, to be able to interact with everyone in a confident manner.

Quotation

I hope to someday go out travelling across the globe to conduct business deals, which is where the GOLD programme comes in. This programme could be the pathway to various opportunities out there and it captivated my interest on internationalisation.

At Kent, we hope all students will engage with internationalisation opportunities and pursue the mind-set that we can all be Global Citizens. The GOLD Programme is an opportunity to enhance that citizenship. Find out how you can get involved.

The GOLD programme

Quotation

The GOLD Programme has been a wonderful experience and his given me many opportunities that I had never considered before. It has provided me with transferable skills and knowledge that I will apply in my post-university life.

The Gold Programme was a highlight of my time at Kent. The team leading the programme listened to all of our ideas and supported us. I developed many transferable skills, gave back to the student community, and made many new friends.
