IntlUni - The International University

Purpose/research question

The overarching aim of IntlUni was to identify quality criteria that should characterise teaching and learning in the Multilingual and Multicultural Learning Space (MMLS) and to develop recommendations for how higher education institutions may implement and ensure sustainability of quality teaching and learning in the MMLS.


Many higher education institutions are facing challenges formerly unknown to them: Students and lecturers alike form much more heterogeneous groups than ever before, speaking a wide spectrum of language and representing a wide spectrum of cultural backgrounds in what may be termed the Multilingual and Multicultural Learning Space.

The final outcomes of the project are to be found here.

The project website contains a full description of the project.

The outcomes are detailed in the literature listed under this theme.
