Day 3 at Going Global 2018 | looking to the future

Published on 04 May 2018

The final day of Going Global saw delegates look to what the future holds for higher education. Bringing together conversations on social responsibility, the importance of partnerships, academic mobility and how research is vital to achieving the SDGs, the conference ended with youth representatives from Nigeria, Malaysia, Brunei and China/UK sharing their vision for what the future of global higher education will look like.

Beyond the debates in the conference sessions the exhibition centre hosted a variety of posters, including many from our member institutions, showcasing the vast impact of university partnerships and research across the Commonwealth and beyond. Barbara Howell and Nigel Trodd from Coventry University took home top prize for their poster which truly embodied the conference theme of 'Global connections, local impact' – a very worthy winner!

If you weren't at Going Global, you can catch up on all the action by listening to podcasts from the various sessions, including the two panels our Chief Executive and Secretary General, Dr Joanna Newman featured on:
