International Partners Week

27 Feb - 1 March 2018

Theme: "The only constant is change"

LATEST: Summary of International Partners Week 2018

We had a fantastic three days welcoming 20 colleagues from institutions across Europe and China. During this week our partners took part in a series of interactive workshops and presentations around the theme 'The Only Constant is Change'. There was also time to explore the delights of Canterbury and we received very positive feedback about the unique experience offered. We look forward to hosting the event again next year!

What to expect

Heraclitus, the Greek philosopher, is quoted as saying "change is the only constant in life."

As the higher education sector faces a time of fast-paced change, we explore the shifting landscape of higher education and the challenges facing university professionals in this time of constant chage. This three-day event will include presentations and interactive sessions covering a range of issues including:

  • Greater internationalisation in higher education
  • Changes in the student demographic
  • Changes in the expectations of students
  • Changes in technology and means of communication and engagement with our stakeholders
  • Changes in the socio-political landscape  

The event will also provide opportunities to network with colleagues from universities from around the world, as well as a range of social activities. The event will culminate with the Univeirty of Kent’s annual Go Abroad Awards ceremony in which we celebrate the achievements of our students who have studied and worked abroad, perhaps at your university!
