NTU is keen to promote internationalisation of the curriculum and to enhance opportunities for our students to acquire the international perspective needed to succeed in the global community.

Global Week in the curriculum highlights examples of how our academic staff are contributing to the week’s celebration by adding an international element to their modules.
