Insitution with event management course or similar, where students would benefit from hands-on experience at a live conference
Going Global conference - 22-24 May 2017, Queen Elizabeth II Centre in London, UK
Going Global is an annual conference offering an open forum for global leaders of tertiary education to discuss issues facing the international education community.
Since its inception in 2004, Going Global has grown from a bi-annual event in the UK to an annual event alternating between the UK and a major international city. More than 1,200 education leaders, government ministers and chief executives from across 75 countries attend this event annually.
Going Global is offering an opportunity for an institution to provide a team of event management students to support the delivery of its annual conference.
We ask that the local institution is able to provide 20 students who would benefit from practical, hands on experience in a professional environment to support the conference management team on site in London.
We have piloted this opportunity with Coventry University in previous years, and both institutions will have students on site.
