Internationalisation and Modernisation Programme for Academics, Leaders and Administrators


The IMPALA project is  an Erasmus + Key Action 2: Capacity Building in Higher Education programme, funded by the European Commission.

Its  aim is to set up a network of European and South African universities and educational organizations to respond to the needs in the South African higher education community.

It aspires to develop clear and viable internationalization strategies within the South African partner universities to bring them up to par and give them a much needed head start for future international cooperation initiatives.

The project seeks to bring the South African partner universities to a more advanced level in terms of management and strategies of internationalization through the training of staff and the strengthening of structures and policies.
