Session 04A

Without data, you’re just another person with an opinion

Data-driven tools, insights and decision techniques have gained importance in recent years, including in universities. However, international students are often left out of the analysis. In this session, we will explore how the full potential of data can be unlocked in the area of university internationalisation, from helping students to enabling more informed decisions at the strategic internationalisation policy level. After a general introduction, two specific cases will be explored.
