An opportunity for UCN to build our partnerships
UCN hosts International Days as an annual event where we invite our many partners to visit UCN. The International Days give our guests and UCN's own staff the opportunity to network with peers and exchange best practices across borders. This will enhance our international competences and allow us to expand our ongoing collaborative efforts with international partners.
Our International Days will furthermore promote Internationalisation at Home, which is one of UCN's strategic focal points. Internationalisation at Home is an important element, as UCN is working at the strategic level to provide all our students with an international outlook whether they travel abroad during their studies or not.
The International Days and the 17 Sustainable Global Goals were first introduced in 2019, and they remain a very relevant agenda. This is why the International Days will continue to focus on the Global Goals overall, while the particular theme may vary from one year to the next. To us, the International Days will maintain their connection with the 17 Global Goals, as putting the Goals’ 169 targets into action will undoubtedly take time.
By hosting our International Days, we turn the spotlight on goal No. 4: Quality Education and No. 17: Partnerships for the Goals. However, all the Goals may play a part during the International Days as they are interconnected and relevant to our various study programmes. Without a doubt, the International Days will be a source of inspiration to all participants in their day-to-day working lives.
