Staff opportunities

The University of Glasgow’s Internationalisation Strategy conveys our commitment to support staff and recognises the importance of international experiences, such as staff exchanges, sabbaticals, fellowships and involvement in collaborative research and teaching internationally.

Each College has an Internationalisation Lead who champions international collaborative developments. It is advisable to include your College Lead in your initial discussions.
