About this session

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, only a small minority of students studied abroad and the imperative of an internationalised home curriculum for all students was already on the agenda. Online collaboration, as an instrument for internationalisation, was already in use. In this session, we will focus on how the different components of an internationalised curriculum can interact to make education relevant in the local context – and what this requires of universities and study programmes.
