Runner up in the NUS-UKCISA Internationalisation Awards 2014 for Internationalising the Student Experience, NTU’s Global Week is a vibrant, inspiring festival of our multinational community on campus. Connecting and celebrating the different cultural heritages of our students as integral to the life of the University, and providing opportunities for students to extend their international outlook, the event contributes to a truly global NTU student experience.
Jointly developed by the University, Nottingham Trent International College and Nottingham Trent Students' Union, Global Week explores the rich cultural diversity of our students and staff. An extensive programme of events shift from Europe to Africa, Asia, the Middle-East and the Americas over successive days in celebration of over 100 countries. Students experience exotic foods, cultural shows, guest lectures, dance and music, art exhibitions, taster language sessions, and even try new, or unfamiliar, sports. Global Week also promotes international opportunities, with an education fair for our Erasmus partners from across Europe, and presentations and workshops on international careers and volunteering. Schools of the University participate through hosting allied events within the Global Week calendar.Read more case studies
