The Faculty of Law promotes a range of internationalisation initiatives.  These differ according to the university's and Faculty's priorities, our partner institutions, the formality underpinning the initiative, who is driving the initiative, and the financial implications for the partnering institutions. A broad distinction is generally drawn between academic collaboration initiatives and student and/or staff exchange initiatives.

Collaboration Initiatives
