International Staff Week

16-20 April 2018

In March 2017, the University of Amsterdam and University of Edinburgh have organized the International Staff Week ‘Supporting (international) students in changing times’, which provided participants with the unique opportunity to visit two universities in two countries in one week. Now we are proud to announce a new International Staff Week in Edinburgh and Amsterdam coming up in April 2018!

ISW 2018: From Edinburgh to Amsterdam

Starting in Edinburgh, UK, and proceeding midweek to Amsterdam, the Netherlands, delegates will be  immersed in an interactive learning environment enabling them to:

  • Develop personal and professional skills relating to cutting edge topics in student support
  • Participate in various social and cultural events
  • Network with colleagues from an international range of institutions

One of our delegates commented on the International Staff Week 2017

“The ISW was extremely well organized both before and during the week. The session content was very varied and I liked the wide range of different status groups such as exchange students, staff members, student ambassadors, invited guests from outside the university. The topics were excellently chosen and all relevant to my work.”
