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.
