Travel Prize – U21 ECR Workshop: Future of International Higher Education
To commemorate its 10th anniversary, the University of Nottingham China Campus (UNNC) will host a Universitas 21 (U21) interdisciplinary workshop on the Future of International Higher Education. This workshop will be of particular interest to early career academics and PhD students.
Being ahead of the development of international higher education in today’s increasingly dynamic education industry is more important than ever. This intense one-day workshop will showcase best practices that will shape higher education institutions across disciplines.
