Training Opportunity: Management of Internationalisation


The key objective of the training course is to qualify university staff (either International Office staff or higher education managers responsible for coordinating international activities) from selected countries of Africa, Latin America, and Asia, to manage processes and tasks of internationalisation in the area of higher education. The programme will enable the participants to build up improved and more effective structures of internationalisation at their home universities. The programme is neither aimed to HEI with an already very developed stage of internationalisation, nor aims mainly to provide knowledge for proposal writing for third party funding.

Up to 30 participants will be selected. A gender balance is aimed at, given that qualifications and other criteria are fulfilled.

In Africa, candidates of the following countries are eligible to apply: Botswana, Burundi, Cameroon, Egypt, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Mauritius, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
