Internationalisation at Home (IaH)

Internationalisation at home is described as the purposeful integration of international and intercultural dimensions into the formal and informal curriculum for all students within domestic learning environments” (Beelen & Jones, 2015). The concept aims for all students to be able to take part in an international and intercultural education. Internationalisation at home is about activities that aim to integrate international and intercultural dimensions within and outside formal education, and affects all students, not just those who participate in mobility activities.

The application

The application (max. one A4) which must contain the name of the responsible person, department and study  programme (can be several) that takes part in the project, as well as project description and budget, must be sent to no later than 1 October 2022. The highest amount a project can be awarded is SEK 100,000.

The proposals will be assessed based on the following:

  • How will the project lead to new or increased internationalisation at home?
  • Is the project plan clear and realistic?

Participation by different departments and study programs is desirable and will be taken into account when awarding funding.

Awarded funding must be requested by 1 December 2022 and the activity must be completed by 1 July 2023.

A decision on allocation will be made by the Internationalisation Advisory Council in October 2022. Projects that have been awarded funding must hand in a report no later than 1 October 2023. The report can be for example a short written report, a movie or a web page.
