Mapping Internationalisation (MINT)

MINT (Mapping Internationalisation) is a tool for self-evaluation and benchmarking. You can use it to develop and manage internationalisation policy at your higher education institution, faculty or programme.

You can also use it to compare your internationalisation activities with those at other faculties or institutions.

Why use it?

You can use MINT for a quick scan or for a detailed analysis. The tool enables you to:

  • get an overview of your current internationalisation activities;
  • set a clear internationalisation profile;
  • develop an internationalisation policy and objectives supported by a checklist;
  • establish improvement plans;
  • prepare for a visitation or for accreditation.

Who can use it?

You can use MINT at two levels. The programme level is meant for individual programmes. For any level above the programme level, for example a department, faculty, school or institution, you can use the tool for the central level.

A look inside

When you use the tool, you provide data by answering a detailed questionnaire. See a sample:

MINT webtool questionnaire programmes(307 kB)

On the basis of this data the tool can generate several reports, for example a self-evaluation report. This gives an overall picture of your institution’s internationalisation policy, activities and supporting services. It also shows how these are embedded in the quality cycle.

The tool also provides a management summary, a comparison report and a benchmark report.

How to register

You can register all year round except for two weeks in August. New registrations will be activated once a month.
