The University is thrilled to welcome Elizabeth Ulloa for a 3 month traineeship at the Gibraltar Botanic Gardens Associate Campus, which will complete her MSc in Environmental Education at the University of Almeria. Elizabeth, who is originally from Chile, will be assisting the Alameda’s Education Team with all aspects of the Gibraltar Botanic Gardens’ education programme, focusing on children aged 7 to 12. The programme of study includes activities related to the use of recycled materials in gardening, horticulture for self-consumption and exploring the role of plants and invertebrates in the natural environment, amongst others.

Erasmus+ is the European Union’s programme to support exchange of students, researchers and staff for education and training purposes, providing a unique opportunity for Europeans to study and gain experience abroad. Following the award of the Erasmus Charter of Higher Education, the University is delighted be part of the Erasmus+ community, which will help strengthening collaboration ties with other Higher Education Institutions internationally.
