INTERNATIONALIZATION AT HOME: THE CASE OF THE UNIVERSITY OF ALMERÍA

V. Membrive, J. Martinez

University of Almeria (SPAIN)
Internationalisation of higher education is one of the main concerns of universities around the world. The international involvement and presence of educational institutions continue to progress. Measuring the process and activities is seen as a way to improve practices and ensure more comprehensive offerings. One of the strategies that has gained momentum in the past few years is Internationalization at Home (IaH). This strategy seems to have impact not only in mobile students, quite the contrary, it requires a compromise from universities to readapt the academic curriculum and reflect on the interactions between local students and international students. The European project named Indicators for Mapping & Profiling Internationalisation (IMPI) focused on the necessary instruments to measure internationalisation of universities, focusing on three main areas: mapping, evaluating and profiling. The University of Almería (Spain) was one of the participant institutions in this pilot project in order to measure its degree of internationalization. This paper will analyze the strategies taken into consideration by the University of Almería (Spain) to enhance its degree of internationalization at home from 2010 until the present day.
