CHEI PhD Research Training Seminar

Our Spring 2019 PhD Research Seminar is scheduled for 25-29 March and will be held at the Centro Paolo VI in Brescia. Information is now online and enrolment will be open on 8 January.

The CHEI PhD research seminar is held twice a year and is open to a broad international community of students and scholars with an interest in the internationalisation of higher education. Participants include current and prospective CHEI doctoral students, and Italian and international doctoral students from other programmes.  

We held our last PhD Research Seminar in Milan in September 2018. As for previous seminars, we hosted a wonderful group of international attendees from all over the world: from the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Russia, the US, the UK, Mexico, Colombia, Israel, Australia, Germany, and Italy. The five-day seminar on the internationalisation of higher education delivered a programme of sessions on PhD methodology as well as plenary sessions on current developments in internationalisation.
