The centre is committed to contribute to delivering excellent education across the University by world-class researchers and informed by contemporary research.

Through the centre’s research activities, the objective is to deliver a new MSc programme in International Development & Sustainability, with strong ties to the centre.

The centre is also contributing to the education and employability activities of the university by developing a scheme, which would provide Global Internships Opportunities for University of Aberdeen Students. In addition, the centre is aiming to expose students to global conferences by linking up with the Global Leadership Initiative (GLI).
