Head of International Relations
I have over 20 year’s professional experience in Higher Education. Over this time I have worked at a number of UK universities, in a number of different areas. A common feature of these roles has been the management of partnerships with educational providers both within the UK and overseas.
Prior to joining City in April 2015 I spent six years at the University of London where I worked as a Senior Manager (Institutions and Global Development). This post provided me with a thorough understanding of both transnational education and those countries that I was directly responsible for. Although a number of the posts I have held have been international in focus, I have also held posts in the area of widening participation/ access.
As a way of furthering my understanding of International Higher Education I am enrolled on the University of Bath’s DBA in Higher Education Management.
I work in close collaboration with the Vice President (International), the Associate Deans International, the Academic Director (International) and senior internal and external colleagues to drive forward Internationalisation at City. My role includes three key areas:
- Providing leadership and day to day management of the International Partnerships and Development team.
- Overseeing implementation of City’s Internationalisation Strategy, ensuring it contributes to the university’s Vision and Strategy 2026 and complements related supporting strategies and School Plans.
- Managing delivery of key strategic Internationalisation initiatives.
By representing City at key external meetings and events I also help enhance City’s global profile and reputation.
