Keynote Sophie Arkoudis

Associate Director of the Melbourne CSHE and a Professor in Higher Education at the University of Melbourne. 

Sophie is a national and international researcher in higher education.  Her research program spans English language teaching and assessment in higher education, international students, quality of teaching and learning, and internationalising the curriculum. Sophie has published widely in these areas and presented keynotes both nationally and internationally on her research. She has supervised 22 research higher degree students to successful completion.


Shifting the internationalisation narrative in higher education.

The internationalisation of Australian higher education has been very successful in terms of recruiting students to study in Australian universities.  However, the persistent challenge of integrating international students into the university community over the last 20 years suggests that the available strategies are limited.  This presentation argues that the sustainability of international education in universities requires a more holistic approach to internationalisation in the future, with a shift in the narrative from international students as having a ‘deficit’ to one of the university developing a ‘host culture’ for all students.
