A Changing World: the internationalisation experiences of staff and students (home and international) in UK Higher Education

Much has been written about the internationalisation of higher education (e.g. Knight, 2008; Caruana & Spurling, 2007), and international student numbers have increased greatly in the UK with the Prime Minister's Initiative (PMI, 1999 & PMI 2, 2006) being one of the main driving forces for recruitment (Trahar, 2007).

This research project was instigated because a need was felt by the Higher Education Academy Subject Centre Network to hear from the ground, how staff and students viewed internationalisation and to explore how an internationalised curriculum might look from the perspective of different disciplines.
