ACA is inviting you to its Annual Conference “The Many Faces of Internationalisation”, which will take place on 14 and 15 May in Berlin. The conference will identify and analyse the manifold concepts of internationalisation, and to create an overview of its practice in selected countries and regions in the world. The annual conference is expected to draw an audience of practitioners and policy makers from Europe and elsewhere in the world. ACA has also invited Jan Figel', Commissioner responsible for Education, Training, Culture and Youth, to speak (participaton to be confirmed). The programme and the registration form can be found on the ACA website.

Meeting student expectations
ACA is now offering the possibility to register for the second ACA European Policy Seminar in 2007 “Meeting student expectations: from minimum provisions to pampering talent. Principles and practice in services for international students”. It will take place in Brussels, on 30 March. This seminar will discuss the added value of student services, presenting best practice models in the field. It is in part based on a recent ACA study, also published in the ACA book series under the title Support for international students in higher education. The seminar has a limited capacity of 90 participants so those who are interested are encouraged to register soon.
