Abstract

Internationalisation efforts in higher education have often been categorised according to Jane Knight’s (2004) binary of ‘Internationalisation at Home’ (IaH) and ‘Internationalisation Abroad’ (IA). However, a rising number of technology-supported activities have created new opportunities for university internationalisation. For example, students can now remain ‘at home’ while using technology to study with an institution or programme that is simultaneously located ‘abroad.’ We have conceptualised these activities as a new third category called Internationalisation at a Distance (IaD). In this article, we introduce the concept of IaD and outline an in-depth of an international distance education provider at scale, the University of South Africa.
