Global Education Profiler (GE-P)

How internationalised is your university?

There is more to internationalisation than a diversified body of students/staff. Truly internationalised institutions pay attention to the quality of their internationalisation process (see also the 4-stage model of internationalisation) and ensure that students become fully integrated, socially and academically, into a multicultural campus, thereby helping them develop the 'global graduate' skills that are highly sought after by employers.

The GE-P is a diagnostic tool - not just a benchmarking device

Our Global Education Profiler is a diagnostic tool that helps you identify what kind of global learning environment your students are experiencing. It is very different from traditional measures of internationalisation.

How can I use the GE-P?

The Global Education Profiler has been tested in different countries around the world to ensure reliability of the generated findings. Therefore the GE-P is particularly useful for HEIs that have either just started internationalising or are in the middle of developing or implementing an internationalisation agenda.
