NUS Charter for becoming a global university

The Charter

Last week at the NUS International Students Training event the NUS International Students Campaign launched its Charter for becoming a global university. The charter outlines ten key principles that the NUS International Students Campaign believe are key to a truly global university. With universities regularly stating their commitment to internationalisation the NUS International Students Campaign believe there needs to be consistency for all international students and home students in how this is applied to institutions.

The Ten Principles

The ten principles the charter states are essential to becoming a global university are:

1. Every university should have an international strategy

2. Students' unions should engage students to develop a global university

3. Institutions should provide accuate and accessible information when recruiting international students

4. Universities should have a transparent process for recognising qualifications and credit obtained in other countries

5. Universities should have a well-planned induction and academic transition for international students

6. Institutions should consider income from fees as a by-product, not an aim

7. Universities should support international students effectively

8. Institutions should be fully integrated in the Bologna Process

9. A global university will have a truly mobile student population

10. Institutions should have an internationally-focussed team of staff
