Regent’s University London is delighted to announce the appointment of Ahmed Masoud as the new Head of the International Partnerships Office.
Joining Regent’s from Oxford Brookes where he worked as Head of International Partnership Development for over nine years, Masoud has also previously taught at a number of other UK institutions and finished a PhD at Goldsmiths College at the University of London.

“The changing landscape of higher education in the UK and abroad provides both enormous challenges and opportunities to continue to strengthen the University’s worldwide reputation as a champion of global education.”
The International Partnerships Office (IPO) is the central service coordinating international partnership activities at Regent's. Alongside his responsibility for leading the University’s IPO team, Masoud will oversee the development of the international partnership strategy, liaising with faculties, schools and departments to ensure partnership activity aligns at all levels, as well as developing and enhancing the relationships with existing and new partners.
