Prize for internationalisation in teaching and learning

Sweden’s medical faculties have set up a joint prize, starting in 2017, for the internationalisation of first and second-cycle education in order to encourage their teachers, teaching teams and other teaching staff to actively raise the level of internationalisation in higher education by bringing an international dimension to their teaching and by improving the students’ global perspective.

The prize is awarded to the teacher/teaching team/other teaching staff that has made a significant contribution to raising the level of internationalisation in higher education over the past three years. This may be achieved, for example, through the development of virtual international course components, through a new teaching experience in the international classroom, or through initiatives that encourage student and teacher mobility.

The prize of SEK 140 000 will be awarded every other year.  The next time the prize will be awarded is in Spring 2024.
