Abstract

In this chapter, we explore the meaning of the term ``global graduate'' and discuss the multifaceted approach taken by the School of Computing and Engineering at the University of Huddersfield, UK, to expose students to a range of experiences and opportunities in order to facilitate their development. Specifically, we focus on both the opportunities available and the challenges faced by examining the different ways that the School works with its students. We highlight some of the key areas in which students are exposed to globalisation, through its award-winning placements unit, and cross-curriculum team challenges led by global organisations. Our discussion draws on current literature and the experience and expertise of academic and professional services staff working with the students. In order to capture the students' voice, we have undertaken a focus group of both national and international students. The approach taken in gathering student opinion on how well the University encourages and supports students to be global graduates is presented together with a summary of its findings.
