Professional Development and Engagement

Through our Professional Development and Engagement programme, we support and develop skills and expertise in global higher education. We do this by working closely with international partners, and by connecting UK and international experts through capacity building grants and strategic projects. 

Our work includes:

  • Professional development courses for researchers and teachers in higher education institutions: Our range of courses focuses on key skills needed in the modern international research environment, and on improving the quality of teaching where English is the medium of instruction. For more information about our courses, please visit our professional development training for higher education institutions webpage or contact us via email. 
  • Providing opportunities for UK and international higher education institutions to collaborate: Our grants and projects support dialogue, knowledge exchange and help to address areas of strategic development.  
  • Providing opportunities for researchers to engage with a wide community of stakeholders: We help researchers to work more effectively with business and policy makers, and to be more responsive to the needs of communities.

Open grant calls and other opportunities to work with us, including consultancy opportunities, are published on our Funding and other opportunities webpage.
