International Education Week 2019

International Education Week (IEW) is celebrated every November in over 120 countries across the globe to celebrate and highlight the importance of international education. This year’s weeklong celebration will include a multidisciplinary collection of opportunities to listen, learn and share your knowledge and traditions.
