Global Learning Opportunities in the Social Sciences (GLOSS) aims to provide students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level with an innovative range of international learning opportunities that contribute to the Faculty’s commitment to promoting the internationalisation of learning and teaching.
GLOSS will provide students with unique opportunities to understand their courses in an international context, actively engage with international policy makers, stakeholders and partners and be involved in international research undertaken within the Faculty.
Our Global Leadership Initiative offers an exciting opportunity for high achieving students from the Faculty to attend major international summits taking place this year. Accompanied by academic staff, small groups of 4-6 students will actively engage in these meetings, developing press and policy briefs facilitated by media and other forms of accreditation.
This is an opportunity for students to gain first-hand experience of international policy debates at the highest level, to attend press conferences and produce outputs visible to an international audience thereby enhancing their research skills and employability. Student participants will produce material relevant to the conference they attend , including policy briefs that will be published in this webpage.
