Deadline extended for consultation survey for HEA’s draft Internationalising HE: framework for action

The HEA have extended their deadline for their consultation survey (to the 16 May 2014), through which you are invited to help shape the Higher Education Academy’s (HEA) draft strategic framework entitled Internationalising higher education: framework for action (the title reflects a focus on the process, rather than seeing internationalisation as an end in itself). They are particularly keen to hear from students – therefore, they would be very grateful if you can please distribute the survey link to both undergraduates and postgraduates that you think might be interested in responding.  


The framework has been designed to inspire and assist the sector, to address the need for national guidance in the UK. The proposed text for the framework is offered to incite dialogue and discussion. They invite feedback on all aspects of the framework including the aspirations that underpin it, its content and the language used. It is intended to be relevant to multiple audiences. They therefore welcome contributions to this consultation from anyone with an interest or involvement in the process of internationalising higher education. They wish to ensure that the final version of the framework is as appropriate and helpful for the sector as possible.


To access the consultation survey, please follow this link:  


 The survey will now be open until 16 May 2014, following which they will review and revise the framework text accordingly in response to the feedback they receive. The final version of the framework will be launched at the HEA’s Annual Conference (2-3 July 2014, Birmingham).
