“The new TU will provide a significant competitive advantage in attracting students, researchers, staff and partnerships from around the world.”
As the director of international affairs at Limerick Institute of Technology, I am responsible for heading up the team coordinating the recruitment and administration of all international students. In this role, I am responsible for forging long-term strategic partnerships that give rise to staff/student exchange opportunities and research collaboration.
I have sat on the board of the Irish Council for International Students (ICOS) since 2016 to ensure international education policy and practice in Ireland is quality-driven and remains firmly focused on the educational and social needs of all students.
I am co-chair of the TU working group on internationalisation, advancing work towards common internationalisation objectives. I am an active member of the Regional University Network-European University (RUN-EU) European Mobility Innovation Centre (EMIC) Working Group which is currently exploring innovative international student and staff mobility opportunities.
I eagerly await the formal creation of our new technological university which will further enhance and expand our international activity and reach. The new TU will provide a significant competitive advantage in attracting students, researchers, staff and partnerships from around the world.
