Internationalising higher education (HE) is an ongoing, institution-wide commitment to fostering a globally aware and inclusive learning environment. This process encompasses all aspects of HE, from teaching and learning to research and collaboration. Internationalisation benefits all HE students, regardless of their location, background, discipline, or mode of study.
This framework is intended for all those within HE and beyond, encompassing those who contribute to and can benefit from an internationalised sector. Its principal audiences are organisations (e.g. HE providers, agencies, bodies and employers) and individuals (e.g. staff, students and employees).
The framework is part of the Essential Frameworks for Enhancing Student Success series.

Internationalisation and students' outcomes or experiences: a review of the literature 2011-2022
The review centres around the literature review 'Internationalisation and students’ outcomes or experiences: A review of the literature 2011-2021' which illustrates 11 dominant themes in internationalisation literature since 2011, which are categorised according to their level of demonstrable impact on students. The review outlines known evidence about “what works” across internationalisation practices and highlights key areas where further research is needed.
