  • Join the UNICA-IAU Masterclass on Internationalization!

    IAU is pleased to launch its first joint master class together with the Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe (UNICA) on internationalization of Higher Education.

    What does it mean to be a Vice-Rector for Internationalization in today’s moving world?

    In the era of globalization, internationalization of higher education has become inevitable.

Combining keynote presentations with interactive group sessions, the master class will give participants a set of practical tools and techniques in order to effectively plan, monitor and evaluate internationalization activities as well as analyse local and global trends in international higher education.
