UCD Global Insights Seminar Series

In a more and more globally engaged world, it is crucial for staff and students at UCD - Ireland's Global University - to keep abreast of new developments and trends in international education and in the broader internationalisation of higher education. This new series of "Global Insights Seminars" will draw from the expertise on-campus, as well as from visitors to Ireland, to present different perspectives on global engagement and on the myriad international dimensions of higher education.
Open to staff and students, these seminars will generally be held at lunchtime, and will be scheduled periodically through the academic year by UCD International, working in tandem with other units wherever possible. We look forward to your active participation and feedback, and are happy to receive your suggestions for seminar topics. If you'd like to propose a seminar, please contact directorinternationalaffairs@ucd.ie
