International Professional Development Unit
We specialise in the development and delivery of professional development (PD) courses and consultancy for international clients.

As a University of Sanctuary, we provide a range of opportunities by which staff and students across campus (and beyond) can contribute to ensuring that we are a genuinely welcoming place for people seeking sanctuary in the UK.
