Successful internationalisation: 29 universities receive HRK certificates
A total of 29 universities were presented with certificates for the Audit “Internationalisation of Universities” in Berlin today. The audit, which takes the form of a consulting service, was introduced by the HRK in 2009 to support German universities in their internationalisation efforts. Existing structures, institutional strategies and measures are analysed by expert auditors, who then put forward recommendations for improvement. 24 universities were recognised for their participation in the audit, while another five have already completed the second consulting phase and were presented with certificates for the re-audit, in which external experts support the implementation of the audit recommendations.
