The International Opportunities team

Based on the sixth floor of Maxwell, our new International Opportunities team take care of international exchanges, study abroad programmes, the development of summer schools, and a whole host of other international affairs. They also deal with international opportunities via Erasmus+, allowing staff to teach or train abroad.

Meet the team:

-Inez Janna Summers: International Partnerships and Mobility Officer

-Alessandra Poti: International Mobility and Projects Coordinator 

                                                                     -Alexandra Luminita Diaconescu: International Mobility and Projects Assistant

If you'd like to find out more about what the International Opportunities team do, all staff are welcome to attend their training session for Exchange Coordinators. This will take place on Wednesday 13 February, 3:30-5:00pm, in Chapman Seminar Room 1/2. If you would like to attend, please confirm your place by emailing

The team encourage you to show your support for the #SupportStudyAbroad campaign, which is asking for a commitment to continued funding for study abroad opportunities, even if the UK cannot negotiate continued participation in Erasmus+ programme. You can do this by simply tweeting case studies, key messages and calls to commit to our goal with the hashtag #SupportStudyAbroad. You can also ask students to do the same. The main target is the Education Secretary @DamianHinds. For more info, click here.
