International Plan

The International Plan was developed through consultation with staff, committees and other groups and was adopted by Council in February 2019.

Responsibility for coordinating the activities necessary to deliver the plan, and for associated monitoring and reporting, rests with the Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor.

The International Plan has been developed to help deliver on the internationalisation aspects of the University Strategy and sets out internationalisation goals and key actions for progress towards the University's long-term vision; it provides divisions/faculties with a framework and actions that can be selected and adapted to fit specific needs.
