More about the Programme

Go Global has been devised to be part academic study and part cultural experience allowing plenty of time to explore independently as well as meet and mix with native students.

The University launched the programme in 2013. The first Go Global project was an offer for Home and EU students to take the opportunity to attend a two-week Summer School run by one of our international partner universities.

In 2014 we offered even more students the chance to go to China. Since then the project has grown considerably and we have now travelled to:

  • China (various locations)
  • Vietnam
  • India
  • New York City
  • Malaysia and Singapore
  • Dubai
  • Mauritius
