The International Education Division implements the University’s strategic objective to promote an increased international focus in all areas of activity by attracting international students to UL, providing UL students with opportunities to study abroad, receiving visitors from partner universities and providing support for UL teaching, administrative and technical staff to visit institutions in the EU and internationally for research, teaching and training. The University welcomed international students from 65 countries in AY2009/10.
Information on IED activities this year is available in our most current newsletter.
