Terry Tudor, University of Northampton
Internationalisation of curricula and activities is becoming a key thrust within UK Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs). This article examines factors in the development and implementation of a collaborative Masters in Environmental Management between the University of Northampton (UK) and the University of Madras (India). Using the concepts of internationalisation as a theoretical construct, the article examines the key challenges faced in the development and operation of the collaborative programme including overcoming cultural norms and bureaucracy. It concludes by discussing key personal and professional lessons.
