As internationalisation is of growing importance for universities, EUA has been actively contributing to the development of European internationalisation at both institutional and policy levels. In the context of its Annual Conference in Ghent (11-12 April 2013), which is dedicated to the issue, the following membership consultation was conducted in the period from 14 January to 26 February 2013.
The consultation asked:
• what the university would expect from the EU higher education internationalisation strategy that is to be launched in June 2013.
• whether and to what extent members participate in EUA’s international activities, and what they would expect it to offer in the future.
In order to be able to validate the results, a few questions have also been asked regarding the state of internationalisation at EUA member institutions. In addition, a question on MOOCs (massive open online courses) has been included, as they are currently attracting a lot of attention and stimulating debate about internationalisation and course delivery in general.
