Internationalisation for society: Connecting student mobility with community engagement through the UNICORN model

  • Thursday 28 Sept
  • Poster area, Level 1, Rotterdam Ahoy

The UNICORN model for international service learning is for academics, mobility experts, students and university policymakers who are ready to engage with the community on a global scale. The model can be adopted by any higher education institution. It requires commitment but not a revolution, and the impact on students’ civic and global competencies and on the community is significant. Are you ready to discover the tools to boost your internationalisation and your ‘third mission’ strategies?
