Concept of internationalisation:
defining the difference
“Internationalization is the process of integrating an
international, intercultural and global dimension in
the purposes, functions and delivery of higher
education”
(to J. Knight 1994)
International Week
Tallinn Health Care College
Concept of internationalisation
4 different approaches
Process approach
The process approach frames internationalization as a process which
integrates an international dimension or perspective into major
functions of the institutions. Terms such as infuse, integrate,
permeate and incorporate are used to characterize the process.
Activity approach
The activity approach describes internationalization in terms of
categories or types of activities such as curriculum development,
scholar/student exchange and technical cooperation.
International Week
Tallinn Health Care College
Concept of internationalisation
4 different approaches
Competency approach
The competency approach looks at internationalization in terms of
developing new skills, attitudes and knowledge in students, faculty
and staff. The focus is clearly on the human dimension and not on
academic activities or organizational issues.
Organizational approach
The fourth approach focuses on developing an ethos or culture in the
institution that values and supports international and intercultural
perspectives and initiatives.

1.
Internationalization indeed has an impact on

2.
For the following competencies it was observed that
internationalization has an impact on the
competency achieved after the training
3.
The duration / intensity of the international
experience is clearly a significant factor in a number of
cases
4.
Other input indicators, both related to
internationalization and more generic (e.g. gender)
seem to be far less significant

estimate the role of the teaching they provide in
relation to the acquisition of a certain level of
competency by students

The quality of the international experience has

Impact of internationalization on
the curriculum and education
An internationalization experience is
IMPACT
– any form of participation in an intensive and/or long (three months or
more) internationalization activity within the course of study, which is
explicitly experienced as such by the participants and which is often but
not necessarily linked to mobility.
– Contact with foreign students or lecturers is in any case necessary in
order to speak of an internationalization experience.
– The duration of this experience has an important part to play in
determining its impact on the course of study and the competencies
resulting from it.

Impact of internationalization on the
curriculum and education
The internationalization dimension is
IMPACT
– consists of those elements that implicitly involve a reference to
international, other-language or inter-cultural elements, but are rarely
recognized as such.
– This is almost never associated with a mobility aspect, but this is not
excluded.
– The extent to which this dimension is covered in the curriculum and its
frequency has an important part to play in determining its impact on
the learning process and the competencies resulting from it.

Statements of students
“I developed myself both as a person and as a future physical
therapist”
(Asa Olofsson, Sweden)
“I feel that after both modules I become more aware of, that the best
way to help a patient in need is not only seeing him in holistic way, but
also helping in an alliance of different health care professionals to
reach best results for the patient.”
(Olga Jensen, Danmark)
“ I have learnt a lot, especially from the
group-work, which was very educational
And inspiring both towards my personal

Statements of students
“Every day I had 1 minute moments. That is the way I called them.
Those were moments somewhere during the day that I started to think
about the things that were happening. Just to be aware of the fantastic
time I was going through.
mostly I looked at the people around me who were busy and I started
to reflect to myself just to realize the value of those moments in a
lifetime. Those moments are for me the melancholy of the moment.”
(Van Wijmeersch Steffen, Belgium)
“The interdisciplinary work was a great challenge. As a nurse I now
know about my future colleagues”
(Alain Roossens, Belgium)

Workers from different countries at the end are the same. We may have
different ideas on which way to choose, but the goal is always the same
– to help. This isknowledge I gained not by reading a book, but by
talking with my fellow students and reflecting.
