Curriculum Internationalisation

  View or download the Curriculum Internationalisation Toolkit

The University of Kent recognises that curriculum internationalisation is an essential component of internationalisation of HE and that the impact of curriculum internationalisation will be more profound if this involves Internationalising learning outcomes, content, teaching and learning activities and assessment tasks.


It is recognised that in order to be successful, the approach taken needs to go beyond isolated optional subjects, experiences and activities for a minority of students and should focus on all students’ learning. Importantly, the process needs to be undertaken in a planned, systematic and sustainable way.
