What is the scholarship about?

Going Global provides an open forum for world education leaders – those in the non-compulsory education sector with decision making responsibilities – to debate issues surrounding global higher and further education, and to discuss collaborative solutions.

We are therefore seeking innovative, agenda-setting poster proposals to be displayed at the conference to discuss with delegates.

Successful poster presentation proposals will be invited to display for the duration of the conference.

Presenting a poster is a fantastic opportunity to network and engage delegates in discussion around the theme of your poster.
