What is Global Week?

The University of Hertfordshire has hosted Europe Week for the last 16 years. This year the event is being widening to Global Week so we can welcome participants from partner universities across the world. It will be a wholly virtual event and take place in the week of 22-26
February 2021.

Global Week will take the form of a series of lectures and seminars to our students on international and intercultural topics, most of which will be located within taught modules within programmes. However, in addition we will offer a significant number of open lectures to all students on topics likely to be of interest to a wider audience. The event is designed to raise a global perspective and intercultural awareness amongst our students and to encourage them to take up an exchange opportunity within their degree.

This year we will welcome over 40 participants from 12 different countries on five continents, the largest number ever of participants. Teaching will take place between 09.00 GMT Monday 22 February and 17.00 GMT Friday 26 February.

In addition, there will be a Research Forum on Thursday 25 February. This will allow participants the opportunity to present papers on their research to both faculty at the University and faculty from our partners participating in the event. In the past out of this, joint research projects have grown.

Students on our BA Event Management are again organising a number of virtual social activities for our visiting participants and for our students.
