Global Experiences Week was officially launched by the Vice-Chancellor and the LU Students' Union with their signing of the UUK mobility pledge in 2017. It aims to connect students and staff with the benefits of Lancaster being a global place to live, study and work. It is an opportunity to share Your Global Experience on campus and/or abroad in connection with Lancaster.
