Global Learning Exchange Programme


As part of the privileged partnership between UNIL and Lancaster University, administrative and technical staff can take advantage of a professional and personal experience in Europe, which allows them to share their expertise, improve their intercultural skills and exchange ideas with colleagues working in similar roles.

Members of administrative and technical staff selected on the basis of their application spend a week at Lancaster University. The costs are covered by the International Relations Office.
