A major challenge facing international programmes is how to evaluate their success and which methods are most effective. In this session, we will discuss an evidence-based approach to intercultural education. We will present ways to measure and track how students develop their intercultural competences and global citizenship during their studies, and we will discuss the findings of our own research into a number of international study programmes.
