The Global Access to Northern Higher Education workshop was especially designed to meet the recruitment and marketing needs of Russian higher education institutions. Russian members actively engaged in international staff development, particularly for international office and programs. The agenda included training sessions on international student recruitment and how to market northern universities as attractive destinations of study, an introduction to the new UArctic Education website and its benefits for members, and sharing best practices on creating and implementing joint programs.

The Global Access workshop was organized by NArFU, UiT The Arctic University of Norway and the UArctic International Secretariat as part of the UArctic project carrying the same name.
