As a result of OsloMet’s increasing focus on internationalisation, “Project Internationalisation” was established in 2016. Vice-Rector for Education, Nina Waaler was the Project Owner. The Rectorate functioned as the Steering Committee and Benedicte Solheim, Head of Section for internationalisation (UTD) was the Project Manager.
A working group including representatives form the faculties, the Student Parliament, The Centre for the Study of Professions (SPS), The Centre for Welfare and Labour Research (SVA), the HR and R&D administration were all central in the development and implementation of the project. The total budget limit was 7,45 million NOK.
The project period was from 2016-2017 and the project was organised in five sub projects:
1) Strategic plans and processes
2) Internationalisation of programme descriptions
3) Internationalisation for academic staff
4) The use of parallel language (bilingualism)
5) Student mobility
