Forum magazine and Blog

The EAIE author community is ever expanding. We welcome submissions from members and non-members alike, and from internationalisation professionals in all capacities. You can find specific information on how to contribute to our two main platforms below.


Forum is the EAIE member magazine, published three times a year in spring, summer and winter. The magazine is themed, approaching just one single issue from multiple angles and a range of geographies each time. As soon as a theme and deadline are known, we open a general call for articles. Upcoming theme descriptions can be found on this page. Submissions can be sent to EAIE Publications. EAIE members receive the magazine in print at home, but can also access it online.

Summer Forum

The international student

Submission deadline: 16 March

Attending to the international students in our midst is the raison d’etre for many internationalisation activities. Student mobility programmes are set up to facilitate the intake of international students, curricula are developed to meet international student needs and interests, and the service offerings at institutions are developed to answer the needs of an increasing international student population. But how much do we know about the international student and his/her needs and expectations? This issue will look at who the international student of today is and what their expectations are, as well highlight good practices in recruitment and retention activities, academic and non-academic student support systems, integration efforts and guidance for helping students leverage the knowledge and skills attained through international exposure.

  • Who are Europe’s international students? Demographics and diversity
  • International student needs assessment: understanding and responding to student issues and expectations
  • Assessing the campus climate for international student success
  • Creative recruitment and retention practices
  • Holistic approaches to student support
  • Successful integration practices
  • International students and employability
  • Technology and the international student experience – current realities and possibilities for the future
  • How student accommodation shapes the international student experience
  • Counselling and guidance services for international students
  • Supporting 'non-traditional' international students

Sustainable Development Goals

Deadline: 15 June

The United Nations have adopted the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlining environmental, educational, humanitarian and societal objectives for governments and civil society to achieve. What can and should higher education institutions do to support the achievement of these goals? Through innovative solutions, internationalisation activities can be made more environmentally sustainable, the curricula can foster globally aware students, and ethical partnering can contribute to capacity building in the Global South. This issue will look at the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of the involvement of international education in the SDGs. 

  • Ensuring gender equality
  • Fostering global citizenship
  • Educating students on practices for sustainable living
  • Courses aimed at teaching global awareness, sustainability, etc
  • Student initiatives addressing the SDGs
  • SDGs as part of higher education’s ‘3rd mission’
  • Strategic partnerships
  • Conducting research that contributes to achieving the SDGs
  • Equitable access to education
  • Joint programmes focused on the SDGs
  • Innovative ways that higher education institutions are incorporating SDGs into institutional and international strategy
