Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore

Research Training Seminars

The Spring 2018 CHEI PhD Research Seminar will be held 19-23 March 2018 at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore's campus in Brescia (near Milan). 

The CHEI Research Seminars bring together senior researchers, international education practitioners and aspiring researchers to discuss current research topics, develop research proposals and develop their methodological and analytical skills. Through the seminars, CHEI is developing a knowledge community in higher education internationalisation which is open to anyone undertaking research in the area or contemplating doctoral study.

The CHEI Research Seminar is a core component of the Centre’s Doctoral Programme. Many candidates use the seminar to create space in their demanding lives to focus on the development of their dissertation proposal. Other attendees are formally enrolled in a doctoral program at another institution and use the seminar to network with other researchers. In the future, CHEI will be developing opportunities for candidates to undertake PhD double degree programs with institutions around the world.

The seminars were developed with the support of the Researchers in International Education special interest group of the European Association of International Education (EAIE) to provide more formalised training on international education research.
