Session VIRT04

Where is the internationalisation of higher education today and where is it heading in the future?

The sixth global survey of internationalisation by the International Association of Universities has taken place in a different world from the fifth edition, with the COVID-19 pandemic and changing geopolitical relations transforming the landscape. This session will present the preliminary results of the survey, together with the findings of the second year of the Future of Internationalisation Partnerships project by the IAU, the University of Toronto and Boston College. Participants will learn about the latest trends in internationalisation.

This session will be available to watch on-demand and will be broadcast during the virtual programme on Wednesday, 27 September at 10:00 CEST.
