Global Partnerships

We aim to develop sustainable partnerships with key international partners to contribute to the University’s aim to “transform lives locally and globally through the creation, sharing, and application of knowledge”.

We are part of the Globalisation directorate.

Our ambition is to develop sustainable and scalable partnerships which contribute to the overall strategy and priorities of the University.

We provide professional support to develop and manage key educational partnerships.

This includes the assessment of potential projects, business planning, and contract negotiation on behalf of the University.



If you are interested in proposing a partnership with us complete the form on this guide and a member of the Global Partnerships team will be in touch with you to discuss the next steps.

Supporting information


The Global Partnerships annual review process aims to provide central oversight of collaborative partnership activity across the University. Schools can also review and feedback on their partnerships.


Global Partnerships works with Schools to support the development of scalable international and UK collaborations. Schools are responsible for the management of their collaborations.

International College Dundee

In 2016 International College Dundee (ICD) was established as a collaboration between us and Oxford International Education Group to help maximise our student recruitment in international markets.

The ICD venture is one of the key collaborations managed by the Global Partnerships team and is an integral part of the team’s portfolio.
