The next Academy will take place from 23–27 April at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden and will gather 20 highly skilled trainers from 10 countries to provide workable, personalised solutions to challenges that come with the internationalization of higher education. Following training courses focused on credential evaluation, international admissions and intercultural competency in Valencia, the Academy in Gothenburg will bring 11 courses from the fields of benchmarking, online marketing for international student recruitment, joint degrees, student support, higher education leadership and more.
Naturally, the Academy considers the latest trends in higher education, giving attendees the chance to gain both theoretical and practical insights for their role in international higher education and ultimately make a difference for their institutions:
Professionals pursing international careers in higher education will have plenty of opportunities to broaden their knowledge every spring and fall. Participants can save on the fee by attending two courses, becoming an EAIE member as well as by applying for EU staff mobility grants. The early bird deadline for the Academy in Gothenburg is 5 March 2012 and the registration closes on 2 April 2012. For more information visit http://www.eaie.org/
