Internationalisation of Higher Education

In order to be able to develop more targeted and effective internationalisation policies, the Higher Education Directorate of the Dutch Ministry of Education is keen to get a better picture of staff and student mobility, both in terms of incoming and outgoing mobility. The Directorate is particularly interested in information about the volume and quality of mobility (such as type of students/staff; reasons for mobility; reasons for choosing a university/country) and the internationalisation profiles of Dutch higher education institutions. A joint pilot study was launched by ECORYS and ResearchNed to map (the feasibility of) the requested information. The focus of the study was on mapping incoming and outgoing student and staff mobility.
