While research on internationalisation in higher education is growing, relatively little empirical evidence is available about this issue in Ireland. This study, commissioned by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) through the Irish Research Council (IRC) call for research on policy and society, addressed the following research questions:
• the extent to which Irish tertiary education institutions have become internationalised.
• exploring the mechanisms in place for the promotion, development and provision in relation to internationalisation at both sectoral and national levels.
The study was a mixed methods study, combining information from a large-scale quantitative survey of public and private higher education providers (conducted by Insight Statistical Consulting) with in-depth qualitative information collected from key stakeholders through semi-structured interviews. The report is being presented to the Chief Executive of the Higher Education Authority, Dr. Graham Love, on Thursday, 28 June 2018 at 13.00 in the Kildare Room, National Museum of Ireland, Kildare Street, Dublin.
