QAA-TU Centre and International Collaboration
Improving Internationalisation Practices in
South Asian Higher Education
Tribhuvan University, QAA-TU Centre is one of the Partner Institutions of MERGE, Erasmus+ Programme to globalise the accelerated the pace of internationalisation of higher education worldwide, including in the South Asian (SA) region, Afghanistan, India and Nepal. The globalised market requires graduates to have international, foreign language and intercultural skills to communicate with int’l clients. Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) plays a critical role in preparing and facilitating a skilled, knowledge workforce, they are placing more importance on internationalisation. However, SA, home to a 25% of the world’s population and a youthful region with more than 600 million people under 18, has failed to respond to the demand on IoHE. The poor internationalisation practices in the region may jeopardise the socio-economic development by unfulfilling the preparation of students’ employability and limiting the int’l profile of the HEIs. MERGE has taken an endogenous approach to address the challenges. The sustainability and long-term impact of MERGE is ensured by enhanced institutional capacity and engaging non-consortium partners.
