The reception was attended by colleagues from a range of faculties and professional services who have recently joined the University from overseas. Presentations were given by the International HR team, the International Office and Research and Innovation. Colleagues engaged in discussion with the speakers and facilitators, and had the chance to meet other recently-appointed international staff from across campus.
