Continued Internationalization Amid the Pandemic Business as (un)Usual

What does learning look like now? 

The higher education landscape has changed dramatically in 2020. With coronavirus cases rising globally, many institutions are starting a new academic year under tightening restrictions and growing uncertainty.In this presentation, current students detail how learning and study have been affected by the coronavirus crisis and what this means for them on a day to day basis. 

 

How are universities addressing the crisis? 

Beyond what the destination country is asking international students to do, universities are also implementing measures to protect students and staff. When asked which measures their university was implementing to limit the spread of the coronavirus on campus, unsurprisingly, the most popular measure was to move as many classes online as possible. However, universities are also making face coverings essential (57%) and ensuring hand gel is widely available (56%)in significant numbers.

Having served the University in various departments over the last 18 years, she is well acquainted with the managing of mobility programmes. She was appointed to lead in the organizing of the 8th APRU Undergraduate Summer Programme which involved the participation of 60 students from 17 APRU member universities. During her tenure at ISC since 2012, there has been a drastic increase of mobility students for both inbound and outbound.  Universiti Malaya proudly has been on the top spot for the Inbound and Outbound category under the QS University Rankings: Asia for a few consecutive years.

During the pandemic, he has been an integral part of the team, implementing diverse and targeted measures to ensure the International Office maintains and grows its highest quality standing with its partners. This vantage point has given him unique access to the specialized coordinators of each facet of the development and continued internationalization push, including efforts made in the backdrop of COVID-19.
