Internationalisation policies

Although this aspect is implicit in other objectives, the importance which international recognition must have in a project of this kind is such (indeed, it is included in the very name) that it clearly deserves special attention.


The starting point will be the analysis of the world’s top international services and the reinforcement of the organisational structure as the basis for an international marketing strategy for the BioTic Granada Campus which will:

  • Define segments and position the BioTic Granada Campus with regard to strategic areas.
  • Promote and reinforce our leading international position as a major focus for the attraction of ERASMUS students, non-EU students especially from Latin America, but also from North Africa, Eastern Europe, and increasingly from the Far East.
  • Be an attractive Campus for Masters and Doctoral-level students and for researchers.
  • Conseguir y mantener un elevado nivel de notoriedad internacional mediante un plan de comunicación integral y mediante plataformas en la Red. T en concreto:
  • Achieve and maintain a strong international reputation through an overall communication plan and Internet platforms.
  • Draft an institutional publication plan.
  • Generate and update content of the institutional website.
  • Study the quantitative and qualitative impact of the Campus in traditional and electronic media.
  • Take steps to provide a set of quality services for international visitors.
  • Launch innovative actions such as GRANADA CARD, a card offering academic services and facilities, but also public transport, entrance to museums or discounts in shops or cultural events.
  • Improve language competence in general amongst members of the BioTic Granada Campus, in particular, in specialized service units. To this end, the UGR has a Modern Languages Centre (CLM) with over 6,000 students on different types and levels of language courses.
    • The essence of this part of the proposal is communication and international recognition of the Campus in all its facets, through participation and leadership of international research and knowledge transfer networks and an international marketing and communication plan, to reinforce internal and external visibility and promotion.
    • To this end, the project will also cooperate with EXTENDA, the internationalisation agency of the Andalusian Regional Government, an essential partner, as their support and advice constitute an invaluable boost for internationalisation.
