The University of Nottingham’s pioneering approach to internationalisation is, in many ways, built on the work of Dr Christine Humfrey (née Shinn), the founding Director of the International Office who sadly passed away on July 10th 2020.
From the early 1980s, when the UK’s fee regime for international students changed, she led a transformation in international higher education at the University and was at the forefront of internationalisation across the sector.
Nottingham’s International Office was one of the first of its kind within the sector and was distinctive because of its integration of recruitment and partnerships with student welfare and well-being and support for research collaboration.
This webinar will explore the evolution of UK university internationalisation strategies since the 1980s and will celebrate Christine’s championing of a holistic approach.
The session will provide friends and former colleagues with an opportunity to remember Christine and consider, as she continued to do in retirement and as a teacher on the PG Cert for International Student Advisers, the current and future direction of UK university international strategies.
