  • Academic collaborations with overseas institutions: Departments and faculties are strongly encouraged to develop links with institutions overseas in support of their teaching, as well as their research, activities. UCL's policy on agreements with departments and faculties in institutions overseas is available here. Initial queries about potential links should be addressed the Office for International Affairs.

Marketing and Promotion

  • Recruitment publications: Departmental recruitment literature should convey the full extent of a department's links overseas, the diversity of the departmental community, and the ways in which course options and other academic activity reflect the broad international context for the discipline. The Publications and Marketing Services team can provide advice to departments on how best to achieve this.
