Key results of the EAIE Barometer: Internationalisation in Europe (Second edition) study
This session will provide an overview of key initial results of the EAIE Barometer: Internationalisation in Europe (Second edition) survey study, which evaluates internationalization of higher education within European HEIs, from the perspective of institutional practitioners. The study was completed by a total of 2317 respondents from 45 European Higher Education Area (EHEA) countries, and 1292 unique higher education institutions – thereby making it the largest and most geographically representative study of its kind ever undertaken in Europe.
This session will highlight both whole sample and regional level results of some of the key questions asked of respondents, including: institutional goals for pursuing internationalisation; activities prioritized within institutional strategies; key internal and external challenges faced by institutions in their pursuit of internationalisation; institutional management structures for the process and respondent’s reflections on future trends.
Participants to this session will be able to ‘take away’:
A better understanding of current internationalization policies, as well as related processes and actions, from the perspective of practitioners within higher education institutions in Europe, and how this has changed over time
An enhanced understanding of how internationalization within European regions, and countries within those is understood and acted upon differently
An overview of the key ‘questions to the sector’ raised by an analysis of the data collected through the study
A reflection on the similarities and differences as to how internationalisation is implemented in Europe when compared to their home institution
