ACU develops strategic partnerships with compatible international universities and institutions to support the following major international objectives:
Increased international research collaboration
Internationalisation of the curriculum
Providing excellent international opportunities for students
Development of transnational education
Increased international teaching collaboration
Sustainable growth in international student enrolments
Many partnerships originate through informal contact between staff at two or more institutions who share similar interests. For academic interactions of limited scope or duration, no formal agreements are necessary. However, if there are sufficient activities and support for long-term collaboration and broader institutional participation, then formal agreements are recommended.
