2023 Research Seminars

The CHEI Research Training Seminar is held twice a year and is open to a broad international community of students and scholars with an interest in the internationalisation of higher education.  Our current students come from Australia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Finland, Honduras, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, the Russian Federation, Spain, Sweden, and the United States.

Our Spring 2023 Research Training Seminar will be held in Brescia, Italy, from 27 to 31 March and we look forward to welcoming you at this in-person event.  

The seminar provides training for doctoral students in research design, critical thinking and effective writing. There are sessions on current research by the academic team on internationalisation of higher education, and all students are given the opportunity to present their work and receive feedback.
The draft programme is available here.


Location & accommodation
The 2023 Spring Seminar will take place at the Centro Paolo VI Centre in Brescia, and you can book your room here at a discounted price. You will find the discount code in the Registration form. Cancellations can be made up to midnight, without charge, before the date of arrival.
We encourage participants to stay at the Centro since it offers an invaluable opportunity to be part of the CHEI community, and to meet peers and the academic team outside the seminar programme.


The seminar fee is EUR 650.
This includes attendance at the in-person seminar, plus access to the online programme which is held between April and June.  The fee also includes the welcome aperitivo, the CHEI community dinner, and refreshments during the breaks.


Registration and payment
Registration is open until 17th February 2023.
You can register and pay here.

Once registration closes on 17th February, we will contact you to request further details (your short bio and photo) and send you information on how to prepare for the seminar.
