Launched in 2017, the Government of Ireland International Academic Mobility Programme (GOI-IAM) is having a very positive effect on the internationalisation of Irish higher education institutions.

The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) is reporting significant progress in its relationship with a leading Chinese university.  Thanks to the support, RCSI has concluded an agreement with Soochow University in Jiangsu province on a twinning programme in pharmacy that will lead to the award of dual degrees from Soochow University and RCSI/NUI.

It is proposed this will commence in the 2018/2019 academic year or at the latest the 2019/2020 academic year.

While Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) is at an advanced stage in putting in place a joint hospitality management award with  St. Lawrence College (SLC), Kingston, Canada.

In addition Trinity College Dublin (TCD) is progressing a joint master programme with the University of Sao Paulo (Brazil) in the area of design innovation.
