UCN International Days

Save the date for the International days at UCN 23–25 November 2021.   

After careful consideration, UCN has decided to postpone the 2020 International Days to 23–25 November 2021. This is due to the health risks posed by the Coronavirus. Nothing is more important than the health and wellbeing of us all. We hope for your understanding and look forward to strengthen our partnership in 2021.

Participating in the International Days at UCN is an opportunity to share knowledge and experience within your educational field and to get professional competence development in an international setting. As an international guest lecturer, you will be invited to collaborate with UCN lecturers to discuss and share experiences on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. During the days, focus will be given to all 17 goals, however Goal No. 4: Quality in Education will be the centre of our discussions. By organising the International Days this way, we hope to build and develop international learning environments within higher education and further strengthen our professional networks and partnerships around the integration of the Global Goals in our study programmes thereby making a valuable contribution to an internationalised curriculum by addressing global challenges with local solutions.

We are now inviting our partner universities and colleagues to join us for our International Days. The International Days will feature presentations, lectures, workshops, visits to companies and institutions committed to achieve the sustainable development goals, and of course networking opportunities for the participants.

The output of your participation
  1. More in-depth knowledge about UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the importance of addressing them as an educational institution.
  2. Professional competencies as well as a network that works with the Sustainable Development Goals, through which knowledge and insights can be continuously developed.
  3. Inspiration and knowledge about how to integrate the goals into your lectures.
  4. An expanded network and meeting colleagues from UCN and other higher education Institutions.
