Internationalization is a powerful transformative tool that can influence the teaching, learning and research at a university. It is also a potent quality enhancement tool that can positively shape the graduate attributes of our students giving them knowledge, skills and competencies, not only in their chosen disciplines but also in the areas of cultural competence and global citizenship.
