Queen's Global Leadership Programme

The Queen's Global Leadership Programme 2018 (United States)

The aim of this programme is to enable students to develop leadership skills in an international context and bring that learning back to support Queen's and the wider community.

The programme will include:

  • Online preparation and face-to-face delivery on campus 
  • Visits to organisations in the US and networking with alumni and other senior professionals. Through this you will see what leadership looks like in a different country and find out how major decisions are made.
  • Through the entire duration of the programme you will work with other student participants on projects which give you the opportunity to become a change-maker at Queen's and within the wider community.
  • On return from the US you will present the outcomes of your projects and run workshops for other students during the last week of Development Weeks (28th May - 1st June 2018)
  • Alumni of this programme will be expected to participate in future QGLP activities including promotion for next year.
