Edinburgh Global, a new online platform for accessing the University’s wealth of international expertise, has launched.
The website is the public face of the University’s new Internationalisation Strategy, which will build on Edinburgh’s strong international reputation, ensuring the University thrives in the years ahead.
Edinburgh Global offers the latest news on the University’s internationally important discoveries, its international student body and its contribution to international events, such as the Edinburgh Festivals.
The website will also help University staff, students and visitors find out about Edinburgh’s innovative research work and influential partnerships.
The University of Edinburgh Internationalisation Strategy was officially launched at a ceremony on Tuesday, 30 June.
Guests at the ceremony included Culture Minister Michael Russell MSP and BBC World Affairs Correspondent Allan Little.
The ceremony began with a welcome by Professor Sir Timothy O’Shea, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University.
The Internationalisation Strategy lists key international aspirations, outcomes and actions for Edinburgh in the coming years.
The University will report annually on its progress towards these goals.
We operate on an international stage and this must be reflected in all areas of University life; from our students and staff, to our collaborations that tackle problems transcending national boundaries, and in the important intellectual and societal contributions we make.
Professor Sir Timothy O’Shea
Principal and Vice-Chancellor
