  • Definition IAU Internationalization Learning badges

    These badges mark the achievement of milestones along the journey of internationalization. They validate the time, effort, and resources that HEIs invest in the significant cultural change that internationalization requires, and recognize the institution’s accomplishments in enhancing teaching, research and engagement through internationalization. The badges also provide external validation of the institution’s work for both internal and external stakeholders and visible recognition of an institution’s progress and accomplishments in internationalization.




  • Internationalization Strategies Advisory Service

    ISAS Presentation
    The IAU offered the Internationalization Strategies Advisory Service (ISAS) to institutional leaders and teams interested in developing or reviewing their internationalization policy, strategy and various programs. ISAS was available to all Higher Education Institutions, though IAU Members paid a reduced fee. HEIs around the world found (and are stil finding) that internationalization can no longer be a sideline in the overall strategic planning process or policy development. It is central to the definition of a high quality institution and an important consideration for IAU Members. Through its Internationalization Strategies Advisory Service, the International Association of Universities (IAU) provided expert advice, up-to-date information and recommend approaches based on best practice around the world. IAU Advisory Service (ISAS) was launched for institutional internationalization planning and development, which lasted until 2016, to be substituted by the new ISAS (2.0) programme.
