Nelson Mandela University attends APAIE Conference

During the month of March 2017, two staff members of the Office for International Education (OIE) of the Nelson Mandela University (NMU) travelled to Kaohsiung, Taiwan to attend the annual Asia Pacific Association for International Education (APAIE) conference which was held from 20-23 March.

This year the APAIE conference theme was the New Era, New Horizon, and New Frontier: Higher Education in Asia Pacific. The sub themes for the APAIE conference were:
  • Globalization Trends and Corresponding Strategies
  • International Research Collaboration
  • Student Mobility and Support Services
  • Benchmarking and Assessment of Higher Education
  • Digital Media Innovations in International Higher Education
The conference was held at the Kaohsiung Exhibition Centre, the first multifunctional waterfront venue in Taiwan, and was hosted by National Sun Yat-Sen University. The conference was very well attended by over 1500 institutions and organisations from all around the globe. The OIE hosted a booth where they marketed the OIE NMU International study abroad initiatives as well as met with several international institutional partner universities. The opportunity also allowed for a valuable space in establishing new relationships with potential partners in collaboration for student and staff mobility in the future. Initiatives such as these assist the OIE in building on our internationalisation at home and in bridging the gap between the local and global at NMU and the broader Nelson Mandela Bay community.
