IAU 5th Global Survey on Internationalization of Higher Education

09 April 2018

The International Association of Universities (IAU), a global Higher Education membership-based organisation set up in 1950 under the auspices of UNESCO, counting today more than 650 members between universities and other organisations, is currently conducting its 5th Global Survey on Internationalization of Higher Education.

This is the longest running internationalization survey of its type, with the first survey being undertaken in 2003. More information and executive summaries of former editions are available on IAU website.

Each IAU Global Survey provides a unique data analysis of global and regional trends and developments in the field of international higher education and related policymaking. The IAU Global Surveys have become an invaluable resource for those interested in internationalization of higher education. 

IAU 5th Global Survey benefits from the support of Agence Universitaire pour la Francophonie (AUF), Académie de Recherche et d’Enseignement Supérieur (ARES), German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), NAFSA: Association of International Educators and UNESCO.

The survey will remain open until the 30th of June 2018.
