Internships will be paid at a rate of pay that equates to at least National Minimum Wage.

Join the Global Leadership Forum bringing together hundreds of students across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas online for three hours to engage with a global network of visionary leaders, representing massive international brands as well as unsung heroes who make change happen in their local communities.
Queen’s have purchased a limited number of places for the online Global Leadership Forum and these are offered free of charge on a first come, first served basis.
The Forum will bring together students from different universities across the world and consists of:
Keynote Speakers (30 mins)- Your journey will begin with an inspiring keynote speaker encouraging you to step up as the next generation of leaders.
Leadership Masterclasses (45 mins)- Hear from global leaders on some of the most pressing leadership themes and issues of today. Experience incredible personal leadership stories and find out how leaders have stood up for the issues they are most passionate about.
Leadership Workshops (45 mins)- Develop your skills and make the next step on your personal leadership journey. Work closely with peers from other universities whilst thinking about your own journey.
Closing keynote (30 mins)- We reconvene as a whole group to hear from a closing keynote speaker who pulls the learning together across the sessions and further inspires you to go and change the world.
Optional Networking (30 mins)- At the end of the programme, you have the opportunity to have conversations in small groups with your peers from across the globe to continue to build connections.
Upon completion of the programme, you have the opportunity to demonstrate your learning by earning the embedded ‘Global Leadership’ micro-credential, which can then be displayed on your LinkedIn profile and as part of your digital backpack. You will also earn a digital Common Purpose certificate that demonstrates your participation in the programme.
