Session 05.11

Expanding the spectrum of internationalisation for students

Internationalisation strategies at higher education institutions across the world have focused on fostering mobility abroad, but mobility per se is not the be-all and end-all. In this session, we will reflect on a variety of internationalisation activities, taking into account students’ socio-economic backgrounds and likelihood of participation. We will combine this with practical knowledge of an institutional approach to accompanying students on their ‘international individual study path’.
