TICKET - Transnational Intercultural Competence through Knowledge Exchange and Training

The project aims to provide academics and professional staff with holistic skills in intercultural competence (IC) that will allow them to enhance internationalisation and improve social-educational delivery across the higher education sector. TICKET responds to the increasing diversity of higher education, by generating opportunities for staff to develop the requisite IC skills to take advantage of the benefits and confront the challenges arising from the expanding number of intercultural encounters and collaborations that take place within the classroom and workplace.

TICKET also seeks to foster social inclusion through promoting diversity by developing social, civic and intercultural competences within staff communities. The project will tackle discrimination, segregation and racism by equipping staff with relevant intercultural competence skills and helping them to engage with under-represented and disadvantaged student and staff groups such as BME, refugees, LGBTQ and persons with disabilities.
