The Education Insight Global Engagement Index (GEI) aims to support the development of institutional internationalisation strategies and invite a conversation about global engagement.

Often, the internationalisation of higher education is reduced to the number of international students and tuition fee income. Janet will talk about GEI, which brings attention to overlooked areas, such as international students' continuation rates and satisfaction with their studies; geographical diversification of international student recruitment; internationalisation at home; and sustainability and environmental impact.

This online event will be particularly useful for researchers, policy makers, teachers and students.
