Going mobile: Internationalisation, mobility and the European higher education area
The purpose of this publication is to raise debate about the internationalisation strategies of UK universities and the UK's relatively low level of participation in student mobility through the Erasmus action of the Lifelong Learning Programme, to be renamed Erasmus for All in 2014. The document further aims to discuss barriers to mobility, and to highlight the benefits that greater participation in mobility would bring to the student experience, to institutional reputation, to research, to graduate employability and to enhanced cultural understanding. Going mobile calls for mobility to be central to universities' internationalisation strategies, along with a strong commitment to the principles that underpin the European Higher Education Area through the Bologna Process.
