Abstract Communities are highly important in working together to raise awareness of key issues and providing support and learning through networking and dialogue. Building a sense of belonging through developing partnerships is a focus in higher education institutions (Healey, Flint & Harrington, 2014), particularly when aiming to enhance student engagement. Students and staff from the Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care at Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford are working towards building a global education network to share experiences of public health topics on a local and global scale. To date, the university is working with collaborative partners in various countries in Africa and America, and aim to extend these partnerships to widen participation around the world. Students have created interdisciplinary patient-focussed scenarios which include inter-professional learning activities, global discussion groups on social media (Twitter) and local community awareness activities such as healthy nutrition, preventing transmission of potentially infectious diseases in the household and understanding antibiotics. The benefits of enhanced learning through peer instruction will hopefully guide and support students towards development of deeper learning practice through engaging with problem solving activities and provide an opportunity for confidence gain in subjects both directly linked to their course and in the wider context of healthcare. Team management and leadership skills are developed in a safe learning environment, where students are accountable to the team for subject knowledge and communicating scientific principles to the wider audience. This presentation aims to report the successes of this project and what the next steps are in developing this further. Funding N/A
