Registration period and deadline

  • The  training week is open to all staff working in the field of internationalisation.

  • If we receive more applications than available spaces, there will be a selection process. The University of Amsterdam and the University of Edinburgh will work together to ensure we select the representatives who are the best match for our staff week theme, in order to maximise the outcomes of the week.
  • Registration was open between 1 December 2018 and 31 January 2019.
  • Confirmation of selected and non-selected delegates will be sent by email the first week of February 2019.
